HistoryHound: What's new in this release

January 22, 2020

HistoryHound 2.1 is a free update for all registered HistoryHound users. This release adds the ability to search for phrases, makes the indexing process more robust, and corrects several bugs.

If you already use HistoryHound, just download and install the new version — HistoryHound will preserve your license information. If you're new to HistoryHound, download it and give it a try. You'll be glad you did!

What's New in HistoryHound 2.1

  • You can now use phrase searches (an exact phrase within quotation marks) when searching in "Spotlight-style query" mode. To enable this, you must first rebuild your search index using the "Rebuild Index" button in the Index Status window.
  • HistoryHound will no longer request more than one page every 2 seconds from a website.
  • Index rebuilding has been improved to make it more robust and to preserve bookmark titles that are different than the title of the indexed page.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause HistoryHound to miss pages in your browser history if indexing was interrupted and restarted or if a single indexing pass took longer than 10 minutes.
  • Improved error handling when you cancel indexing or quit HistoryHound while it is updating its search index.
  • When HistoryHound's built-in browser is hidden, opening a result in a web browser now requires a double-click.
  • HistoryHound will not try to open a nonexistent URL when you double-click on "Please enter a search phrase".
  • The search prompt now updates dynamically as pages are added to the search index.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when scanning Google Chrome bookmarks.
  • Index dump files are now correctly encoded as UTF-8.

Yay for history hound! Just yesterday I was dying because I needed this tool. It is too late for that website, but it won't happen again! Thanks for your humble, incredible software (with nice icons too!)

Like all good programs, this makes one think 'Why did no-one think about that before?'.

The last time I saw a Mac app/utility that got me this excited was when Watson was released. I also would like to commend you on your ability to create thoroughly unique applications. You have never approached application development with a "me, too" attitude. If this app turns out to be anywhere as good as Default Folder (have been using it for years), you've got a real winner.
