Find As You Type 1.3 is available

I'm proud to announce the availability of Find As You Type 1.3!

This new version is not a very big release, but it contains some critical bugfixes and other minor improvements. For the full list, see the change log.

The biggest change perhaps is the availability of localized versions. That's right, Find As You Type is going international. Available right now are German and Dutch versions next to the usual English version. I'd like to thank Christian Liensberger for the German translations.

Unfortunately, support for Windows 2000 has been dropped. No, it's not just that the installer won't let you install it; if you'd try to use it, it wouldn't work. Windows 2000 users should continue to use version 1.2.

The coders among you will like to know that the source code has been cleaned up significantly and many comments have been added, so more than ever Find As You Type can be used as an example for IE toolbar writers everywhere. I plan to do some articles about some of the changes I made, time permitting.

hi there, i'm trying to update find as you type 1.1 to 1.3 but when removing I am asked for the 1.1 installer files. I unfortunately have deleted them.So I am currently unable to install 1.1 because the removal fails. Do you have any suggestion on how to solve this, or make available the 1.1 installer again? thanks

Sorry for duplicate post. I would like Find as you type to stay open and open on the tool bar when I open a browser window. The 1.3 version automatically closes it when I close the browser window. Is there a way I can change that? If not, how do I download version 1.2? I am using XP SP2 & IE 7.

Find As You Type crashes in IE8 (XP SP3 x32); any chance of fixing this?
Great add-in though.

Hi Sven,

Find As You Type pops up "Catastrophic failure" errors in IE8 Beta 1. I found a workaround: enable IE7 Emulation Mode. Please see ; I would prefer if you replied there.

I edited my post at Idea #4 in the post (the focus problem) isn't actually a real problem on IE8 Beta 1.
