HistoryHound 1.9

A program for searching the webpages you've bookmarked or visited recently.
 
1.9.12 (See all)

HistoryHound is a program designed for Mac that comes in handy if you're working with multiple web browsers on your computer and wish to immediately find a webpage you've visited or bookmarked recently. The application supports a wide range of web browsers, comes with a powerful search tool, and immediately provides you with the results you need, without slowing down your Mac in the process.

Before using this utility on your Mac, you need to create the index of the app. You can choose which data to be imported in the HistoryHound, such as Firefox bookmarks, Safari history, etc. Once the application completes the index, you can start using the integrated search tool to find the website you wish to visit.

An important advantage is that HistoryHound comes with a built-in web browser. Hence, you can visit the found pages directly from its interface.

Unfortunately, the built-in web browser is quite limited. For example, you cannot save a page you're visiting as a bookmark. Still, the program provides you with a quick and simple way to open the current webpage in your default web browser.

All in all, HistoryHound proves to be a reliable solution for immediately finding bookmarks, RSS feeds, etc. It's easy-to-use, efficient, and cheap.
