a bit slow to appear; then seems to be learning my desires
The name - "Alfred" the butler. Not James, Bunter; not even Igor but Alfred with a top hat. Oh well, it is a new world. Maybe Hal-only he gets mean. Perhaps they could offer male & female. I'd take an Emma or an Elle.
I've been going back & forth between QuickSilver & Alfred. QS returned to some problems; Alfred improved. It lives now in my dock.
I have tried many different launchers, but this is the best of the lot. I use it so often I tend to forget that it is not part of the OS.
None that I have found
Does what it says it will do, launches quickly, gives results just as quickly. An excellent untility.
None discovered so far.
Seems more stable so far.
I have yet to find any. It is a little slow to start but my old MacBookPro whispered how I should treat myself to a new iMac.
Works as well or better than the previous version. Is more stable than Quicksilver.
Simple to use, many features especially like the link with 1Password.
Not aware of any yet.
Works as described.
Doesn't do anything that a user can't already do without it.
I find it easier to work using an widget to speed my navigation on the MAC. I like the ease of use and can see using this app more as its capabilites expand.
Would like to have more tailorable capabilities but this is a great start from the dev team. My understanding is more is coming.
I like the direction that Apple is taking with the "Alfred" app, hopefully more development will make it even better as it evolves. Clean download and install. I am a power Mac user and like more widgets that will be available on all platforms.

This review makes it sound like Alfred is an Apple product, but it is not.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
For those that prefer a launcher that pops up a window in the middle of your screen - or anywhere really, just not anchored in fine print to the top-right corner like Spotlight is - give Alfred a try.
It isn't a finished product yet, but already has a lot of polish and some nifty features - like customizable web search engine shortcuts - without the extra complexity of, say, Quicksilver. Hasn't crashed on me yet, and is very clean and quick.
If it's missing a feature you want, double-check the preferences and helpsite just to make sure it isn't already there, check their twitter page just in case, and tell them about it.
