Switching from Quicksilver to Alfred
To be clear, Alfred is free to download and use – but the Powerpack is where the fun stuff is, IMO.
Despite my many years of use, I primarily used Quicksilver as a way to manage triggers/shortcus for opening applications. I had a few custom triggers that now feel like second nature to me, but hadn’t delved too deeply beyond that.
I was able to set up Alfred somewhat quickly, though it did take me a bit to wrap my head around workflows. And took me even longer to figure out how to creat my own custom web searches (and bind them to a custom shortcut).
I’m still not very good at manipulating files and copying/moving them about, but I’m getting there.
Looking forward to exploring more of what can be done with triggers and workflows via Alfred. It’s been about a week, and so far… the transition has been decent. I don’t know that I’ll be going back.
