LaunchBar Comments

Too few likes

about LaunchBar Dec 2012

I do not know why this application hasn't more likes. I have tried all alike, but in the end Launchbar is really the best solution.
Start an action by keeping the keys pressed a little longer (no Return needed), grab text and finder items by just keeping your trigger pressed. And much more.
Browse the manual, be amazed and save yourself a lot of time.
