AcidSearch 0.4 Preview
The AcidSearch 0.4 preview is finally done. This preview is identical to the final version in features. It is only available in English and may contain bugs, however. Use at your own risk (it is possible, though fairly unlikely, that this version could crash Safari). Please post any problems you may have (or send them to me via email). Comments and other feedback are appreciated as well! Download AcidSearch 0.4 Preview here.
New features in this version include:
- Channel images (a.k.a. Favicons)
- Find As You Type input box and customizable next/previous result keys
- Right/control-click on a search field to quickly add a new search channel
- Improved channel parser
This version also is the first to use SparkPlug instead of SIMBL.
UPDATE: I have reverted to using SIMBL for the time being until I get a few issues ironed out in SparkPlug. Apparently it does not work for some users. The problem is, I'm unable to reproduce these issues, even when installing on three different computers. Once I figure it out I will return to using SparkPlug. If you had an issue with AcidSearch not working before, please use the old installer to uninstall (if you still have it) and redownload.
UPDATE 02/11: I have posted a new version with a few bug fixes, and some other modifications, which should hopefully allow those of you who had problems with the previous versions to use AcidSearch. It uses SparkPlug again. If you do have problems, please state what localization you use normally, as well as whether or not you have used AcidSearch before. It would also be great if you emailed me your console log, which you get by running Applications/Utilities/Console.app. Thank you.
