Use LaunchBar 4 to control iTunes
Authored by: William McCallum on Apr 05, '04 04:15:57PM

The programs Rob mentions (Launchbar, Quicksilver, Drag Thing, Butler) fall into at least two quite different categories, those that are primarily aimed at mouse people and those that are primarily aimed at keyboard people. Some try to do both, but none do both well. People keep saying "Oh, you can do X far better with Y than with Z" without recognizing that Y does it through the keyboard and Z does it with the mouse. Neither is better, it depends what you want. There are good reasons for preferring either; repetitive stress syndrom makes you mouse-averse, lack of touch typing skill makes you keyboard-averse, for example.

I'm not sure what you mean, but I can't think of any flaws in Butler's implementation of either keyboard or mouse support.
