Great application.

But UI/UX could be massively improved and simplified, such as hiding non-frequent options under an 'advanced' drop-down panel or 'more options' or such.

Another major downside is that when a text string search is found, it tells you the binary position in the file, which is utterly useless, and doesn't state the line number.

Another major negative is that it doesn't show preview of the lines where it found the match, such as the first few lines before and after - instead only showing a list of files where the match was found.
And if I remember correctly, opening the listed file also doesn't take you to the line where search text was found.

A better alternative is BareGrepPro - although unfortunately it's not free, and has a 5-min timer before it auto-closes.

This application could not compare duplicate files using hashing.

SMF-Search My File can do deduplication. SMF is better.
