Comments about Gnome Do as a Alternative to Everything
There are mainly 2 big reasons : 1st : It does not find everything (every file) that does exist on your system. 2nd : It is not a tool to find specific files, especially if they are located on other disk drives.0
Catfish is a handy file searching tool for Linux and Unix. The interface is intentionally lightweight and simple, using only GTK+3. You can configure it to your needs by using several command line options.
Comments about Catfish as a Alternative to Everything
Everything is instant once the drive is indexed which takes seconds on my 5T drive. Catfish is very slow by comparison, having to actually search each time you type something instead of immediately showing all results.2
it's fast and simple to use, you can simply select the drive, add a keyword and start the search.-1
A fast real-time search engine for displaying regular expression matches (both file name and content) across multiple directories.
