FileSearchy is a very excellent free opensource tool where unablet to find any other alternative for this and unable to contact the author or their main web-site doesn't seems to work http://www.filesearchy.com/
1. Files are indexed 2. search within file contents < less than a second 3. search results are highlighted and easy to navigate the search content files with highlighted text 4. Supports many popular formats - pdf, txt, epub etc., 5. supports regular expressions 6. copy selected file names, paths, or multiple files to the clipboard, ready for reuse elsewhere 7. The tabbed interface is a notable plus. It’s easy to have multiple searches open and active at the same time.
Now it seems pro version is also free (Ref: https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=21285)
Could someone help me with a similar opensource or free software which has these features ??
Any comments or suggestions would be great.

I am looking for a cross platform i.e platform independent software, similar to filesearchy.
