Use Safari to find things more easily in text files
Authored by: kiwiatcornerpub on May 06, '08 08:07:00PM

I might have missed something, but if you drag any file onto Safari (an icon or window) it will attempt to display it.

One limitation seems to be that it doesn't do the grey-out trick if there are more than 100 instances of the found text.

Correction - not 'any" file :-)

But it did work with .log files and a few other text files I had lying around including some without an extension. I guess there is some sort of rule here, but it's not obvious to the casual observer.
