Launchbar 6 vs. Alfred 2

If you aren’t using a quick launcher like Spotlight or Alfred on your Mac at this time, I urge you to drop whatever TV show you plan to watch this evening and take 20 minutes to learn your way around one. Keyboard launchers are a great way to enhance your experience and productivity with a Mac.

Todd Olthoff’s screencast shows what the apps Launchbar 6 and Alfred 2 can do. Watch it if you want to see a great comparison of these tools, or if you just want a good introduction to them.

I’ve been a fan of Alfred for more than a year, and Todd’s video has convinced me to use Launchbar for a month to see if it does me better (so far it is).
