I was using Quicksilver up until I read this post, but I just installed QSB and it’s already replaced Quicksilver.

Thanks for the heads up.

Glad Google and the QS guy are doing stuff, but I find QS ‘clipboard history’ has been one of those things that went from ‘meh’ to ‘MUST HAVE‘ in no time at all.

Ano recent find was the ability to use QS to squirt todo’s into RTM. So I’m not even close to stopping using QS (even tho’ I’ve installed the new Goo.

I never understood the benefit of Quicksliver. Spotlight has always worked great for me.

What is the benefit you guys get out of using QS?

Besides the things Alan Bristow mentions you’re able to append text to text documents without opening them (“Append to…”), enter a search query to sites you add, skip tracks in iTunes.

Spotlight and QS do look the same. The big difference is that with QS you can press tab to get a list of what you want to do when you for example search for a contact. In Spotlight it only opens the contact, in QS you can choose to email contact, edit contact etc.

Just a heads up…
