HistoryHound: Latest Release

History Hound SoftwareOriginally downloaded 12/15/05.Keeps an index of all pages you visit, for fast searching by keyword. Compare with Browseback.

Update 1/20/06. As it turns out, History Hound does more than just index the pages you visit… it actually revisits the places you visit and indexes them. Not only is this a little bit creepy, but it also proved quite dangerous for me. You see, with History Hound on my tail, the software would re-execute forms I had just filled out, in some cases duplicating effort (or, potentially, orders!), or, in my case, wiping out my work. I couldn’t figure out why information I put in the database kept disappearing, and then I figured out it had to be History Hound! So, I’ll find other ways of searching my Safari history, thank you very much!
