Description

The really rather tremendous launching'n'everything application developed by Blacktree, Inc. Quicksilver is a small but powerful application that creates a catalog of your applications, folders and documents. It allows you to keep your fingers on the keyboard and stop rummaging through your system to find items you need now. It is extremely easy to use on the surface, but a powerful tool that becomes more powerful as you learn its full capabilities.

Search

Activated by a simple keystroke, a customizable search entry appears and allows you to limit your search term as you type. The search is adaptive, so Quicksilver will recognize which items you are searching for based on previous experience.


Command

A quick tap on the tab key puts you in action mode where you can open, e-mail, lookup, send, compress, copy, and otherwise do lots of useful things with what you just looked up.

Adding Capabilities

By installing any of a number of plug-in modules, your capabilities can expand to include interacting with your bookmarks, email, IM, the command line, and much more.
