Today's poll brought to you by...

Thanks to hmelman for the suggestion for today's poll -- it was one of many good ideas presented in the comments to my recent call for help. Look for more polls from that thread in the future -- looks like we'll have enough topics to keep the polls fresh for a while at least! Thanks to everyone who submitted ideas.

Snard for me...

...and not just any Snard. I prefer the original "Docklet" version (remember Docklets?) that is no longer available.

From a long time ago I was a big fan of the old Now Utilities and the closest I have come to a replacement is the pretty good AliasMenu (http://www.widemann.net/aliasmenu/index.html). But I only use this on my main Mac with a nice wide screen as it tends to eat up menu bar real estate.

I have tried the keyboard launchers and find my preference leans to menus rather than keyboard for launching. And on my iBook and other low use Macs I just make a folder in ~/Documents called "Apps" give it a custom icon and drag it to the dock. I place simple aliases in the menu and that works remarkably well. Either a click and hold for 2 seconds or a right/ctrl click for instant access works great. That method also seems to impact the system less by not running a lot of background stuff required for the alternative menu systems or keyboard launchers
