10.4: Demystify Spotlight's saved search syntax
Authored by: stonematt on Oct 13, '05 07:49:23PM

I use LaunchBar (http://www.obdev.at/products/launchbar/) to do basic application launching and search by filename. It actually predicts/learns shortcuts, so I can type "pho" to launch iPhoto and "ps" to launch Photoshop, etc.

WAY faster than spotlight, Spotlight isn't indexing some of my folders and I can't figure out how to tell it to, but occasionally it works for me. It's great as the search engine inside Mail. I seach mail all the time and it's very good.
