Findthatfile is a new search engine which is specifically designed to dig deep into the Net for files like documents, PDFs, zip and others. As well as focusing on filetypes, it also burrows into FTP, P2P and other areas which are file storage treasure chests.
You may say that Google does this already, but the fact is searching for documents on G. is more likely to throw up Wikipedia and Amazon entries first off, so anything that can remove the cruft gets our vote. I’m going to keep it handy just in case.
<Mmm…unfortunately it looks like their Firefox addon has disappeared for some reason.>
How are we different from other file/search sites? We search as deeply as possible to identify the most relevant data from over 300 million files. This means we open each file, identify its author, title, contents, text extracts and all kinds of goodies that nobody else does.
