QuickSilver as reflects by its name, is the fastest application searching for Mac. But, its quickness affect its user too. Its user must have ability to quickly key in all the keywords required to open specific files (or they have to replay it all over).
In contradiction to Spotlight, one of the searching application in Mac. Spotlight can search everything you want, but not with the same quickness as QuickSilver. It always returns everything.
Which one do you prefer?
When searching for application, I prefer using QuickSilver. As I have experienced before, QuickSilver always returns apps that I want. Different from Spotlight that give me lots of result, it slows me down to look at what I want first.
Looking for Files with Very Long Name
I like to make some of my files’ name in a very long and very descriptive way. Whenever I want to use my QuickSilver to look for that file, I always pray to not make any mistakes in typing. And all the time I ended up giving up and choosing my Spotlight.
Surfing the Web
Of course I choose QuickSilver, Spotlight returns icon instead of my desired web page. (Thanks to proeffect.com for its “Matrix Effect”)
For this, I like to perform to my friends feature inside QuickSilver to type very large font. It is better than Spotlight, that make all its environment dark and make some files shining.
Finally, I make my mind. I choose QuickSilver, how about you?
