Alfred vs Quicksilver


Between using Quicksilver and Alfred, I find myself immediately liking Alfred more as my quick app launcher for OSX. Quicksilver has much more free functionality and power, but I really like the interface for Alfred. I wish every website, os and interface had a power tool like this.

If you’ve never used a “type-ahead” app before, it’s basically an application that does stuff by typing into a small text input. It’s typically launched by pressing a keystroke.

I’ve been using Alfred for a few minutes, and I’m already in love. Hat tip: Aaron
