I've added Coda and Yojimbo to my list. In about 1 hour, I loaded up Yojimbo with snippets, images and web links. Glad I broke down and finally purchased it. I'm a sucker for Journaling apps.

Quicksilver, for me at least, is OK. I use Spotlight when I need to launch and search for apps I don't have on my dock. But I have used it on my macbook in the past for some time.

I don't use Quicksilver, as I like to keep OS X as standard as possible- so I'm comfortable sitting down to work at any stock Mac. Dabbled with it and PathFinder, then realized that I live in Steve's world- might as well use Steve's tools. :)

I ditched Quicksilver pretty fast for native Spotlight and dabbled with GQSB, but when I found Alfred, it was all over :] By far the best launcher I've ever used.
