Slaviana Soft Released a New Version of SeekFast - Software Tool Searching 7000 Files in Half a Second

June 5, 2014



Sofia, Bulgaria (PRWEB) June 05, 2014

The Bulgarian IT company Slaviana Soft released a new version of search engine SeekFast, which searches 7000 files in less than half a second. This achievement solves the problem of finding quickly a text on the computer without using indexing.

The problem reported by those users of computers who have accumulated thousands of documents over the years is: "Can't remember where it was used... Help!"

The SeekFast utility was conceived, developed and launched to answer this cry for help.

Three main design criteria were cast in stone from day one:



Speed

Support of commonly used files types on the Windows platforms

No computer overload - no indexing

Common look and feel with the other more common search engines The SeekFast tool was therefore created to avoid the pit-falls of programs that index the files on the PC; they usually require a lot of time and resources. Tests show that it searches 7000 files in 0.2 - 0.4 seconds. The most relevant texts are displayed first. This closely resembles the work of Internet search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing, but this type of search is rarely used in programs for local searching on a computer. In addition to normal text files, the new version of the software tool opens documents of various types, including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, OpenOffice, and many more. These are the most widely used document types, so in practice all documents in a folder and its subfolders can be searched with one click. Currently SeekFast has over 8000 users from all over the world and the number is growing rapidly. The tool is used by people with a variety of professions, especially lawyers, journalists, doctors, managers, office workers, writers, programmers, and other professions, where working with a large number of documents is required. "I have over 12,000 short quotes, stories and illustrations stored in multiple Microsoft Word files that have been randomly typed in over the years, with no attempt to organize them," said Richard Love, a SeekFast user from Louisiana. "I find it hard to believe that in 20 years of hunting for a search engine that does what I want that SeekFast would be the ticket... Now you have solved it for me!" Several features distinguish SeekFast from other similar programs:



SeekFast displays the most relevant results first

SeekFast does not use indexing and thus does not overload the computer

SeekFast works with a lightning speed

SeekFast allows searching documents in any language Along with the new version of SeekFast, two free tools are released on the website: "View docx file online" and "View odt file online." With these free tools such documents can be read without having Microsoft Word or OpenOffice installed.

The first version of the search engine was developed in 2008 by the Bulgarian company Slaviana Soft. The company specializes in development of business software, web sites, and online marketing.

More details on the capabilities of the program can be found at seekfast.org. The free version of the program can be downloaded from the download page.
