What is your best launcher for Mac?
Just found lite version of AmbiLauncher Mac App Store - AmbiLauncher Lite (It's free and without ads)
It works very interesting: you do not need to press buttons or make clicks, just moving pointer to edge of the screen and back.

Personally I think Alfred is the best spotlight replacement/app launcher/do pretty much anything really quickly app there is.
It's a bit like a friendlier version of Quicksilver.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Another vote for Alfred.

Longtime Windows, then onto slippery slope with iPod/iTunes in 2006, then Apple TV, iPad, iMac, iPhone and finally rejuvenated a discarded MacBook. Happy camper.

+1 to Alfred. I downloaded it yesterday, and I absolutely love it. A great do everything type of app and a great replacement for spotlight.

Had Alfred too, it's great - has lots of stuff But then found I could do most of the stuff I need to do with spotlight and native shortcuts so I uninstalled it and never found the urge to go back.
