Alfred for Mac hits 1.0
The brilliant little utility Alfred has reached v1 status after a couple of years of public testing. For me it’s an invaluable way to launch apps & start Web searches quickly (in my case I hit Opt-space from any app, then start typing a name or query) and to get multi-clipboard functionality. For some reason I could never get into the command-line Quicksilver or other multi-clipboard tools, but Alfred hits a sweet spot.
The app is free, but the paid Powerpack (which enables multi-clipboard support and numerous other features) is well worth the £12 price.
