Editors' Review

Launching applications via keyboard shortcuts can increase your productivity. Quicksilver for Mac studies your habits and helps you achieve better control over your Mac. It functions very similarly to the Mac address/search bar, but with extra functions and even quicker launch options.

Quicksilver for Mac comes packed with its own installer, which makes the installation quick and easy. Once the free app has been installed, you can access it by pressing the Quicksilver hot key. To extend the functions of this app you can download some additional plug-ins available from the developer's Web site. There are default preset hot keys for popular programs and actions, but you can change them and add your own. You can also configure the app to quickly initiate tasks by using triggers. This allows you to perform actions such as sending an e-mail with a few quick keyboard shortcuts. The app is very lightweight and supports a lot of features that are great for increasing productivity during your daily computer use. One of its best features is the ability to adapt and learn from the way you use your own computer. It can recognize common strings and phrases you type when launching certain apps to further improve your productivity.

With a plethora of settings and customizations available, Quicksilver for Mac seems to be one of the best app launchers available on the market. If you are looking for ways to increase productivity on your Mac, this app is definitely one you should try out.
