## Act without doing
One of the big pleasured I found since switching to the mac is [Quicksilver](http://blacktree.com). For years it was _the_ way for me to launch, open, do anything. If you’ve never used it, it’s definitely worth you looking at. Unfortunately, the developer Alcor, has moved on to a lucrative job at google and left it’s future to the tubes. When leopard came out, QS broke (supposedly – it’s fixed, but I’m fickle). That sucked for me. I’ve been looking for a replacement since. There’s a ton of products that kind of do the same thing: [launchbar](http://www.obdev.at), Google’s [quicksearchbox](http://google.com/quicksearchbox), and [butler](http://manytricks.com/butler/). But – I’ve just started using [alfred](http://www.alfredapp.com/). I like it because it’s FAST, lightweight (for me with full indexing of everything, it only consumes 12.5MB of real RAM), and it has a clipboard manager (when you buy the powerpack).
The developer is very active on twitter and on their support forums. For $15 bucks (was on special at [AppSumo](http://appsumo.com)). It’s well worth the bucks.Tags: alfred, alfred app
