From: Leon Brocard Date: 12:34 on 14 Jun 2005 Subject: Spotlight Muahaha, http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/spotlight/ says: "Spotlight for Mac OS X Tiger lets you blaze through all of your files and applications and see results as soon as you type the very first letter" Does it now? Only if you type at about 1 second per letter on my non-Intel Powerbook! Let's pretend I'm trying to find an application. I Command-Space and type in the application name, watch it find all sorts of crap, and then only three seconds later show the actual application I was searching for. [Sidenote: command is the key with the apple and bit of string on. Option is the one labelled "Alt" and the frying pan] Three seconds to find something which you should know is already there, because I typed it in not so long ago and I search for a few times a day? Hateful! Even "locate" is faster. Back to Quicksilver we go, Leon

Even if Spotlight is more thorough, I need an incredibly powerful launcher more often than I need to search through all of my files. Incidentally, 43Folders just posted a neat "Comma Trick" with Quicksilver: http://www.43folders.com/2005/06/quicksilver_the.html I probably won't use it much, but who knows? Still pretty nifty.
