> addition to being really fast, it "just works". By that I mean it automatically excludes the files I want to be excluded, like `.gitignore`d files

I basically never want this, so for me, ripgrep's one flaw is that it never "just works".

The nature of defaults is that they will never please everyone, because opinions on what is useful have been encoded into the defaults. If you want to completely disable ripgrep's smart filtering, than just do this:

    alias rg="rg -uuu"

You can configure ripgrep to default to whatever flags you want by creating a configuration file and defining `RIPGREP_CONFIG_PATH`: https://github.com/BurntSushi/ripgrep/blob/11.0.0/GUIDE.md#c.... Try putting `-uuu` in the file as burntsushi suggested.
