 Inside Tiger: A Look at the Finder and System

"The most significant changes to Tiger's Finder involve Apple's new Spotlight technology; as previously covered, the search field is greatly improved in both speed and functionality. Hitting a plus button inside the results window for the Finder's integrated search reveals options to narrow your search, such as "Kind," "Last Viewed," "Keywords" and "Contents." Also added is an iTunes-like "Smart Folder" function which allows you to save your search results as an auto-updating folder. When created, Smart Folders are added to the places sidebar. This essentially builds the power of Panther's current systemwide search feature (command-F) directly into the finder. "
