    Commercial Mac Web Android iPhone Chrome ... Safari Website saves you time by helping you to easily find webpages you've seen before. It's like your own personal Google: a search engine for all the webpages you've seen.

    It's smart. Search across the full content of the pages you visit. Sophisticated search ensures you always find what you are looking for, even if you only remember a few keywords.

    If you've ever had a hard time finding a file before, this is what you've been looking for.

    • Combine criteria to narrow down search results
    • Specify which folders to search and which ones to exclude
    • Add any of the hundreds of columns available
