collect a large amount of files on your computer while work, sometimes
it’s hard to find something necessary. If you search by keywords not
by filename, you may find similar words with different meanings
(track, trail, home and so on...).
find out if that is really what you need demands opening each file in
a specific editor (doc – Word, pdf – Acrobat Reader, html –
Internet Explorer and so on...). It takes really much time, for each
program needs few seconds to be loaded. Also it makes you tired and
leads your job to be non-productive.

next file), “Next fragment” (moves to the next found abstract) and
just the same to the reverse direction – “Previous fragment” and
separate button, “Generate report”, makes the FSA to
generate html file where all found files and their
properties (path, size, hits) and the text abstract are
listed. It’s quite useful when you should communicate to
your colleagues, doing similar job, and with the help of
such reports you may share your work results.
