Does someone know if it's possible to have Wox show search results based on recency? I.e. most frequently/recently chosen results shows up first. I'd like Wox to LEARN from the choices I pick from its results list (like how Launchbar for macOS does it). Right now, it's pretty unintelligent in that regard.

I'd also like to be able to use abbreviations for common items (again, like Launchbar on Mac). I presume this isn't possible in Wox, correct?

Works nicely when stable

I've installed Wox on 3 computers and it gets the job done (i.e. is a suitable/progressive replacement for Launchy). However, it should be noted that Wox is pretty damn unstable at this time. It crashes daily - including on startup.

With that said, I'm confident that this application will matured further, and could even become the standard for Windows application launchers.
