Promising a lot and keeping the promise..
A fantastic add-on without compare.
Mingyi ignore the previous reviewer who called it mediocre. It is not even on the same planet as mediocre.
Thanks for developing Fastest Search for us.
People you should donate if you use this add-on.
Thanks for the support! I had an analogy once about this situation: Let's say I made cookies and put them on a stand for people for free. Most liked them and were grateful, some didn't like them and just left. But there were just some rarities, they didn't like the free cookies for whatever good or purely personal reason, and they felt obliged to come back to the stand, put up a sign that said "this cookie doesn't taste good!". Maybe they felt like superheros saving the world from bad free cookies?
Thank you for liking my cookies and put a thank you sign at my stand. For those that had to come back and bark at my stand, they really should consider just put down the cookie and leave. Such behavior will not encourage people making more free cookies ...
ӨТЕ ЖАҚСЫ! Бұл программаны ұсынамын. Ол өте пайдалы. Жазушыға мың да бір рахмет. What an amazing add on. This does exactly what I want and way more. I am very impressed. A lot of great work has gone into this app. My friend started using fire fox because of this add on.
I use this for my language learning. When I am making flash cards, I can quickly opne up a tab with the english dictionary, a turkish dictionary, a google image search, a couple of example sentence tabs, and an audio search all with a few strokes of the keyboard. This saves me lots of time for every card I make.
Thanks for the kind review! Nothing makes me happier than knowing that FS helped saving people much time or converting to using Firefox!
Amazing array of features. It takes a few minutes to figure some of it out, but it does everything I wanted.
This is an amazing add-on, and that's even just scratching the surface. The quick search icon saves me innumerable copy-paste actions a day. I look forward learning the full power of the options. Thanks.
Great addon!! Needs a bit of a learning curve to get the most of it but it sure is worth it. Once you get a hold to it, browsing with firefox feels more natural, smooth and, of course fast. A must have! Mil gracias Mingyi Liu!!
I have added "Fastest Search" to my ♥ top favorite list! ♥ Because it does everything I wanted and more!
What makes it best from the rest, is its ability to highlight all the selected, matched words I choose, or even Sentences in a webpage, and it finds them all!!
And also if you click on the red Highlighted text on the Right of the page, it can automatically Takes you to the other match results found on the Page! Wow!
Now, In comparison to "Scrollbar Search Highlighter", which most of the times can Not find the same [sentences] more than 1 time and also It can't find all the matches as perfectly as "Fastest Search".! :-)
I've tried this addon on Fiverr, where I wanted to find specific user comments, for more than One time, inside the whole page, and "Fastest Search" did an Excellent job!!
It saves me a lot of time, Every Time!!
Thank you very much guys fro creating this amazing app! ★★★★★
Thanks for the kind review! Glad that the addon's very helpful for you.
"Fastest Search" is an accurate description of this extension. Extremely useful and user friendly. I would recommend it to every Firefox user.
[Exception... "The expression cannot be converted to return the specified type." code: "0" nsresult: "0x805b0034 (TypeError)" location: ""]
everytime ,i see this warning, i can't use this add on
Hmm, never seen that and can't tell much at all from the error message. Can you let me know your OS, FF version (or if you're using Palemoon). Would you also please disable all other addons and then try FS again and see if it works? If it does, then enable other addons one by one and you'd find which addon is conflicting with FS.
Well done, Mr. Liu. Fastest Search does so much in the most elegant way. New users might be confused or even annoyed by the SearchBox (which can be disabled), but they'll soon discover its power.
Two requests: an option to disable the dragging trail line, and an option to open new tabs (with dragging) next to the newest tab, not the currently active. If I create a new tab and then another one, I'd want all new tabs to the (far) right and not in between.
Thanks for your amazing extension, everyone should get it.
Thanks for the glowing review! I wholeheartedly agree that everyone should give SSB a chance as they can all benefit from it (despite that like you said, some do not like it at first).
For the requests - they're reasonable, but low priority on my list. I would like to see more such requests before I implement them - it's mainly because I really have too many things at hand right now...
Another great search add-on!
Je viens de découvrir cette magnifique extension hier;
je peux déjà dire que j'apprécie 2 choses: 1) la Smart Search Box, vraiment très paramétrable, et hyper-facile d'accès par popup2) la fonction de filtre par Ctrl-Shift-F ( ou Ctrl-F pour les inconditionnels !), qui permet, notamment, de filtrer dans un énorme fichier log ( visites de sites, etc...)
M. Mingyi Liu est un super développeur, des extensions comme celle-ci, j'en veux tous les jours ! ... Merci.
PS: une suggestion pour améliorer la fonction filtre des fichiers logs, qui se terminent par .txt (ou .log ?): ne pas afficher les x caractères (x est un paramètre) avant la chaine recherchée, mais uniquement les caractères précédents jusqu'au caractère "nouvelle ligne" ou la séquence "CR+LF"...plus facile à demander... qu'à faire !Christophe http://ressources.fr.cr
Thanks for your kind review! I used SSB to translate and understand it. :)
I have no recollection of installing this add-on to my PC. However it got there, I love it!
Someone must've installed it for you then. Glad that you like it!
By Far the most comprehensive extension I have found. It will replace many addons I have now and will DEFINITELY IMPROVE THE SPEED and specificity of my searches. Thank you Mr. Liu. YOU, Mingyi, are the REAL DEAL. I support and salute you!
"UGLY..." Reviewer: TAKE NOTE, IF YOU WILL, of the following "Note to Developer"...
BTW, I wrote this before I read Mr. Liu's response to your "ugly..." review.
Note to Developer:
Mingyi, the intricate thought patterns, logic, and scale of sophistication you incorporated into "Fastest Search" as well as your ability to pack SO MANY PRECISION tools into ONE Add-on, is a clear demonstration that you are superior in your field. (As Spock might say: "...He clearly possesses a superior intellect.")
You even built your on tools!!?? MAN!
AND BTW: I WHOLEHEARTEDLY AGREE WITH YOUR RESPONSE TO THE "UGLY..." REVIEW.
Thanks for your enthusiastic review! Such appreciation makes me feel all my efforts was worth it.
UPDATE: Thanks for standing up for me too! :) I appreciate your taking the time and effort to defend FS, which can truly be appreciated the more one uses it. At least that reviewer did mention that FS has many many features. And after seeing my reply and your post, he removed his review (perhaps agreeing to our points?). Regardless appreciate both actions from you and the reviewer!
v3.05 - Now text search panel (or find panel) always opens at bottom right, a bit less intrusive than before - sorry if you don't like it at first!
I have two monitors, on the first screen (left) maximized firefox when I open text search panel, it shows at bottom left on second monitor, but I expect it at bottom right first monitor.
Back from vacation and confirmed this. As I suggested earlier, however, that this is an Addon SDK issue that's beyond my control. I just filed a bug report (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=955918), hopefully this gets fixed.
On the other hand though, I actually find the Find Panel opening on another screen a nice thing as it's not covering any document content at all.
seems pretty cool
Thanks! BTW I used Fastest Search to find out the translation for "素晴らしい！" :)
The new smart cut is very good , but smart paste is causing me trouble ( upon middle clicking any where in the page , if missed a link click then pasting content to top search box , also page scrolling to top) . So what i think is either there should be separate options for Smart Cut , Copy , Paste or Smart paste behavior should be fixed ( only paste when textbox is near ) [ As there is only one checkbox for all 3 i disabled all 3 ]
Feature request : I use "Find as you type" if i use backspace its deleting but I want arrows to be used to edit it [ I know Ctrl +shift +f you can do , but not if FAYT }
I changed my mind and separated Smart Cut/Copy and Smart Paste into two options in Misc. Settings in v3.25. Just download & install and disable Smart Paste.
The Smart Paste along doesn't cause you trouble, it's because you have both Smart Paste and Middle click paste enabled. The Smart Paste enables pasting into the top searchbox (or searchbar if no box on page) if user is not pasting into any particular textbox - this behavior is actually useful if you think about it. The Middle click paste was the reason why Smart Paste was even activated when your middle click misses a link. I'm not sure there's a way to make the behavior of the 2 features combined suit every user by default. I honestly think (and users complained) that FS already has too many options so I'm leery to adding another one for this. Sorry.
I thought about implementing caret when I first implemented FAYT but it was technically/conceptually troublesome, so I gave up on it. It doesn't work well when not using textbox, therefore using Find Panel with Ctrl-Shift-F is the only way.
amazing, thanks! ;)
a little need made me discover this, i watched the whole instruction video & i really have to recommend it! Truly useful. Already part of my surf experience!
Thank you for taking the time for the video & write the review! Allowing users search and surf faster has always been my goal for this addon.
Fastes search is just the best and most integral solution for searching text in pages and tabs and fast online search engines access (via location bar for example). The developer is very supportive and very helpful in considering ideas and problems. The settings user interface is a bit awkward, but that is mainly because there are so many possible configurations and the developer has succesfully tried to not cumber the user with too many text and information (unless you press "?").
There is no other search add-on that reaches this level; I have tried them all. There used to be some things that couldn't be done that other similar addons could, but meanwhile they are all integrated and working (also the ones I myself have asked!).
Thank you for the kind review! I'm glad that FS is meeting your needs!
Great extension! One of my favorites already. Especially since adding search engines via mycroft project doesn't seem to work anymore, but this is more powerful and easier anyway!
Only frustration so far was finding the Options pop-up -it's in the add-on bar, which I don't use, but you can move it to the navigation bar if you want.
And, of course, it's really complicated, but you don't have to learn ALL of it if you don't want. With just five minutes you invest on it you'll already have upgraded your search experience much.
Thanks for the review! Indeed Options system is not ideal (although one can get used to it and in many cases it's much faster than the usual addon options).
Also true that invest a few minutes is all that it takes to enjoy a few major features that'd make a difference for search/browse experience. More advanced features can be learned as users wish.
