Mac: We loved Flashlight when it first launched as an experiment and today it's officially out of beta. That means it's a little more stable and faster, and has a bunch of new plugins.
Instead of using a third-party utility like Alfred or Launchbar, Flashlight integrates new functionality into Spotlight directly using plug-ins. You can add as many as you want and skip anything you don't care about.
Right now, Flashlight has an astounding 160+ plugins available. It's not as complex as the other app launchers out there , but it does what many average users need. This final version also works a lot better than the beta, so if you found it a bit sluggish before, it's worth another look.
