This app is simple and straight to the point. It does one thing, and it does it well. I've been able to open very large text files and search them without my computer bogging down. Very limited use, but for what it does, it does it quite well. Recommended.

And it seems unnecessarily confusing to name this GUI app the same as the command line version.
