10.6: Quicksilver may require manual upgrade
Authored by: auco on Oct 17, '09 01:57:58AM

and the hint is… ?

I was very excited to read the rest of this hint, but then found that was all :(

Since 10.6. most of the plugins are broken: Dictionary and Calculator I do miss most. And it's true that the beta crashes a lot more than the old/stable version. So if you never missed the prefs so far, don't upgrade QS at this point. You probably won't be able to go back without needing the preferences window!

However, QS is going to be rewritten from the ground up; there is already a good part done. The developers decided that in order to make the code better maintainable.

I don't know about Google Quick Search Box, it surely is a nice program, but first, I don't like to see the Google Logo everywhere; and second: I don't want to know Google about things I search on my desktop. Apparently it does a websearch on every term I type. I think it's enough to use Google with services without alternatives (eg. WebCAL calendar). I'll just be patient and wait for the new Quicksilver.
