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.
probably because its commercial =)

I never really saw what Quicksilver had over Launchbar, except being free and having a thousandfold more extensive community surrounding it – which, of course, aren't really bad things at all – quite the opposite.
However I've found Launchbar to be less crashing-prone, more minimalistic and at least equally as snappy as Quicksilver. Development is quite steady and the app feels quite feature-complete at this point.
One very considerable bonus in Launchbar (which I'm unsure is/was present in Quicksilver), is the sweet clipboard memory function, where you can retrieve/paste any of your last <40 clipboard items.
Launchbar offers a whole slew of nice features and it's perhaps my most time-saving app, all categories.
since quicksilver isn't in development anymore launchbar has become its replacement.
