Mac: Quicksilver, the app launcher and desktop search tool for Mac (and one of your favorites) officially emerged from beta this week. The release adds a wealth of new features to help you modify your catalogues and create shortcuts and synonyms for the files you want to access.
The new version of Quicksilver (1.0,) is more than just feature-rich, it's something of a new start for the Mac launcher and tweaking tool that's still our favourite choice for the Mac. The new version lets you add files and folders directly to the top-level catalogue for quick retrieval without having to search your whole system, and also allows you to assign synonyms — suchh as abbreviations, alternate names, or anything else that jogs your memory — to a file, folder or other target object so you can toggle it quickly.
Quicksilver 1.0 also packs a stack of bug fixes ("Add Trigger" finally works), improvements that play nicely with AppleScript, and new localisations for anyone who wishes Quicksilver were available in their language.
