Quick launch …

Well, well well… every Mac users should know Quicksilver, if not … then you MUST check this.
Quicksilver is an apps that make you launch any application by simply tapping the firsts letters of its name. It’s very usefull, and fast any hardcore computer users will become addicted! I will not describe all the possibility of Quicksilver there’s a lot! but look at this overview from the official project’s website.

But unfortunately this apps is only for OSX… True, but when an apps is as useful as Quicksilver, we can always expect to see some opensource project emerging, trying to fulfils the needs on other platforms. On Linux there’s a project that is very similar (but still lack some finest) and is called Katapult. There’s a feature I really like in Katapult that I did not found in Quicksilver and it is the integrated calculator.

Katapult and Quicksilver can also find a contact in your address book or a specific file name wich you can launch the application associated with it directly.

For the unfortunate that use the OS of Redmond there is Skylight.
