Use OpenMeta to find files in OS X's Finder

The Finder supports OpenMeta in its search options. To have the possibility at hand, you must add the option to the menu first. Otherwise you have to select it first, every time you open a search in the Finder. To add Tags to the options menu, take the following steps:

1) Open a new finder window

2) Enter search mode.
The default is to search in the contents of files, but... when you hold down the shift key with the menu open, the Find item changes into Find by Name...

3) Open the 'Kind' menu by clicking on it and choose 'Other...'

4) Tags
Scroll down or type 'meta' in the search field and look for the entry named 'Tags'. Check the box in the column 'In Menu' and click OK.

5) Search using Tags
When you leave the search field blank, 'Contents' or 'File Name' are not used in the search.
With Tags-search, you can enter multiple keywords, separated by a space.

If you want to use a command line tool to write metadata to files yourself, you can download an installer right here.
If you are looking for GUI clients, look here.
