LaunchBar 5: Application Launcher for OS X
Keyboard-centric application launchers are becoming more and more popular. There are three big ones: Quicksilver, Alfred, and LaunchBar. What many people may not know is that LaunchBar is the original application launcher — it dates all the way back to NeXT.
Like many, however, my introduction to application launchers began with Quicksilver many years ago. But in 2009 I began using LaunchBar instead and haven’t looked back.
