I've released version 1.0 of QuickWho, a GUI for the Unix command-line "whois" tool. QuickWho locates information about the ownership and registration of Internet domains, using whois as its underlying engine.
There are already many ways to access whois data, including from the command-line, from Internet sites, and even with other GUI tools on the Mac (some free and some shareware). I wasn't satisfied with any of them, however. I wanted something quick and simple that I could simply launch, type the domain name, and get the data I was looking for. So QuickWho came into being.
Version 1.0 of QuickWho has a small set of features; its main focus is on providing a simple way to get whois data. I plan to add features in future releases to make it more than a simple GUI wrapper for a command-line tool. If you run a lot of whois queries and want a nice, simple tool to make it easier, QuickWho might fit the bill for you.
