Quick application launching!
A great tip submitted by Josiah Turner: Quick application launching! This really is another application launcher but I feel it deserves to be mentioned! What I really like about it is its simplicity (I buy Macs because of the simplicity after all) and how fast it responds (faster than QuickSilver). It is called Namely. You can download Namely here from MacUpdate. The first thing I did once it was installed was to check the preferences to set the shortcut, enable the "Open on Login" and get rid of its Dock icon. That is one of the only complaint I have about it, there is no way to get rid of the Dock icon in the preferences. That issue can easily be resolved with Dock Dodger (download Dock Dodger here) and that is what I did right away. One of the thing that I really like about it is that it learns from your actions. The more you load a certain application, the higher up on the list it will be! Thanks for the great tip Josiah!
