I have recently started using a handy little (well big) application called Quicksilver. Essentially its a launcher for applications, but it can do alot more than that. In only a matter of a couple of weeks, its become second nature to invoke Quicksilver and then type a letter or two in order to open an application, and I now find myself doing more and more stuff with the app. It’s very well polished for something that is in such active development. It’s appearance is simply stunning, especially with the new cube interface, which I have discovered is customisable, so now it integrates even more in to my working environment! It’s also speeding up my workflow as I don’t have to leave the keyboard now, I can just use QS.
