DEVONtechnologies has released EasyFind 4.9, an update to the company’s freeware utility that can be used as an alternative to or supplement of Spotlight to find files (see “EasyFind 4.0: It’s Easy, It Finds, It’s Free,” 11 October 2007). This update adds an Active Finder window option to the Location pop-up menu plus the capability to drop files or folders on either EasyFind’s Dock or Finder icon to search them. It also promises more reliable and faster content searching, as well as improved handling of Quick Look on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and later. (Free from DEVONtechnologies or the Mac App Store though the latter hasn’t yet caught up with 4.9, 2.0 MB)
Disabling Dock Space-Making Feature
Having a hard time dragging a file into a folder in the Dock without the Dock trying to make room for it? Holding down Command while dragging the item temporarily disables this Dock feature.
