Hi,
Any body using Alfred app? I'm really satisfied with Apple Spotlight.
Do you use a third party launcher (Alfred or QuickSilver for example)? If yes, please tell us your reasons.
Thanks.

Nope. Even before Lion, I didn't. But I use Lion's Launchpad all the time.

After using Alfred in anger, I can't live without it. Really productivity booster.
The iTunes mini player, run system commands, the clipboard and many other useful stuff.

Both pretty awesome
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
