Solid. Works like a champ.
I've disabled Spotlight for some folders with a lot of PDFs files that require a very high work for spotlight to index and I use EasyFind to quickly select all these PDFs to take a look at them.
I use this instead of uninstaller apps like app-zapper and app-cleaner. It searches the whole of my hard drive in a few seconds and lets me find literally all traces of an app, unlike the "uninstallers" which only search certain folders. 10/10
I use it daily, since spotlight gives crappy results since I have it turned off on some drives due to cpu clogging... this app is real fun! and besides runs on low memory!
