Fastest Search - Browse/Search Faster!

Will FS be updated for FF57? Likely, but I'm seriously weighing the option to switch to support Chrome instead. Before I finally update FS for FF57+, I personally just switched FF update option in General to "check for updates but let you choose to install". I will post updates on the status here or on my website.

If after following instructions below, you still have questions, email me using the 'Support E-mail' on the right -->

Please note:
  1. Current version is not multi-process compatible! You need to disable multi-process otherwise performance will seriously suffer & some features won't work.
  2. Known addons that interferes with FS in some aspects in the past:

To get started on FS, please watch the first few minutes of the instruction video for FS v3.0 video. This addon has dozens of features, most of which has explanations or how-tos in the long feature list further below. Please read it, it's time well spent!

For any further question, FAQ page on Fastest Search's website. and the Help page should help - or email me.
BTW in the instruction video description I listed the start time of many major features explained in the video so you can click on it and jump to those spots. There are other older videos in that Youtube acct. I created for FS as well if you're interested.

As a basic courtesy you can give to authors of free addons: Don't leave a bug report/complaint as review, contact the email for support instead; and don't leave a bad review because you just want one feature (like regex) and don't want many other features FS offer - you can turn them off - just use Options (read docs as needed).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Long Feature List (with brief How-tos) for v3.0+:

The BEST text search (use Ctrl-Shift-F), better than ANY browser or addon
Instant (optional) Search in URL Bar
Fast/Instant Search on Custom Search Engines
Unique Smart Searchbox (SSB) Provides the Fastest Search on Selected Text
AutoCopy / Drag&Drop Features
Misc. important features

This addon is almost certainly the best of several categories. With this one addon, you don't need addons like 'InstantFox', 'InstantFirefox', 'Add to Search Bar', 'AutoCopy', 'QuickDrag', 'Super DragandGo', 'OmniBar', 'Dictionary Tooltip', map/weather addons, text search addons etc. It's not that this addon covers ALL the functionalities of them, but it covers absolutely ALL the MAIN and more functionalities and has more important features - best text search by far, multi-tab preview, best engine support & management ...

As a result of the VAST number of features, You're strongly encouraged to either watch the demo videos or read help and faq on my website:
Introduction video to v2.10 (highly recommended!)
Demo Video 1, text search, instant search, shortcut for engines
Demo Video 2 for select & search/auto copy/DnD save images to multiple locations
Fastest Search Youtube Channel for other demo videos

Don't forget to check out my "TableTools2" extension that lets you sort/filter/search/copy/rearrange/chart/combine/compare/more any HTML tables in FF!
