Sherlock is slow, okay, but finder ?

Sherlock admittedly sucks square donkey balls when it comes to file searching. But the new, finder integrated search is more than fast enough for me. I've never had to wait longer than a few secs, which is exactly what locate claims... So why burden your dock with it ?

I use both cmd F and Locator. The two features of Locator that appeal to me - finds invisible files without TinkerTooling; catalogues and archives removable media, such as my data CDs.

Try having 20-30 Archive DVD's filled with graphic file projects and popping one in and doing a search on it sometime.... ssssssslllllooooooowwwwwwwww.

Locator however pre-indexes everything on those DVD's for me and I can search using it and find what specific DVD I need to load without ever initially loading a disc.

Granted much of the time I may simply use Cmd-F but Locator is very slick and a great improvement to the built-in functionality without having to tie yourself down to a separate stand-alone app.
