Can you recommend me a good launcher app? I've used the following:
Humanized Enso - Truly amazing work from Aza. But the local port 7070 is not working for me
Colibri - Works ok
Launchy - I dont think I like it a lot.
If there any other that you are aware of please do let me know.
I use slickrun, is a command aliases launcher, so you can name as "TV" the "C:\Program Files\Prolink\PlayTV Pro\PIXELTV.EXE", and with a simply keywords, launch your more usual programs.
So what is a launcher. An application that keeps track of other applications and makes is easy to launch them just by typing some characters of the name or summing thier icons in some specialized menu ?
Before you ask what purpose those launchers in times of docks and start menus have - all launchers I know (on mac) serve much, much more purposes than just launching applications and are said to raise your productivity significantly.
However, I only use Quicksilver as some fancy launcher and occasionaly to control iTunes.
If that is the case than I think advanced operating systems like windows, mac and linux should have a good and powerful launcher app integrated within them like browsers, text editors and virus protection tools are now a days integrated.
Executor looks nice. I'm going to try it out
I've used Executor as well. It's very powerful and customizable.
I just use Google Desktop and use the Ctrl Ctrl shortcut to make the search box appear. From there, I just type the program or whatever file I want. Of course, you have to turn on indexing.
Am I wrong to think that only professional software developers would need a specific laucher?
