What do users say

I've been using Aba Search And Replace for just three hours now, and already I have saved, quite easily, 20-25 hours worth of work I would have had to do without the use of your program. I really appreciate you for creating such a simple and useful tool.

This is a very well-written search / search-and-replace utility. Lean, exceptionally fast, easy to use. This was one of those utilities that I don't normally need, but after checking out the website and features, even though there are freeware offerings, this was well worth the purchase just to have available. The incremental search speed is astonishing. The product is excellent, but it could do with code signing. As for ordering, I hate Plimus, and you can't use a free email address (I strongly prefer Gmail).

Note from the developer: we added code signing and switched from Plimus to PayPro Global after this review, so you can use a Gmail address now.

Your “search-as-you-type” interface and UTF-8 matching should be known more widely. I use Japanese, English, and Arabic in my html files and no other software satisfied me. It is not easy to use regular expressions in general, but search-as-you-type function helps to set regular expression codes easily.
