gentle persons, just a comment - the program needs to generate an index of the meta-data, etc. Therefore immediatly after installation opening a search in the browser does not reveal many *if any* results. Indexing might take time depending of the number of files in the assigned folders.

Where's the Macintosh version??? The download link points to two different windoze (yucko) versions and a Linux version.

I have tried all the biggest desktop search systems and for me x-friend works best. Compared to most of the competitors, it has web-based interface, it indexes all the interesting files (pdf's, any text files, etc), and it uses pop or imap connection to index e-mail, so it is fully compatible with (or actually independent on) Thunderbird or other e-mail systems.

Great Software. Indexing takes time (this is not x-friend's problem alone but all search software needs some time to create an index). Worth a try!
