A beginner's guide to configuring Butler
Authored by: poocat on Apr 26, '04 12:54:41PM

i mean, i hear all your "free" chants, but i just wanted to let everyone know that launchbar does all these things (or almost all) with almost no configuration.

couldn't activate the bar? command space, my friend, command space.
couldn't navigate? left arrow, right arrow.

i've tried them all. launchbar is simpler and more effective. quicksilver is pretty, butler is flexible. i want intuitive speed and minimal thought. for that i take launchbar.

just some jiao for my thoughts. china will do strange things to your brain too.

A beginner's guide to configuring Butler
Authored by: Tovarizzle on Apr 26, '04 03:33:09PM

I've tried Butler and Quicksilver, but in the end I've settled with Launchbar, with Quicksilver a close second. When using Synergy to control iTunes, the advantages of Butler seem less still. However, I acknowledge the pros and cons of all the options (I would kill for Quicksilver's syntax-based method for opening files with X, etc).

It's all a matter of preference. Is anybody planning on making a similar getting started guide with LaunchBar? Does one exist?
