SpotInside: usable spotlight queries

MacOS X comes with a handy desktop search built right in. However, choosing what you are looking for from a long list of results can be quite awkward. On my ageing Mac Mini — a real Mac being a PowerPC! — also the search-as-you-type feature of spotlight makes it painfully slow, to the point of unusable.

A better way to search the results is offered by SpotInside. It shows the contents of almost everything, makeing it a treasure to find what you are looking for.
