Launchy

Launchy - Application Launcher.

When deciding which application we'd be featuring first Kev an I were in perfect agreement - Launchy is an application we both use countless times a day.

There are a lot of application launchers out there, but I've yet to see one that comes close to Launchy's speed, small Memory/CPU footprint and beautiful simplicity.

Once installed hit the shortcut (Alt - Space by default) to bring up the Launchy box, then just type the first few letters of the application you want to run and Launchy will bring up the closest match for you. If it doesn't guess right first time you can scroll through the list of other possible matches until you find what your after.

It's also adaptive - so if you always choose firefox instead of fireworks it will suggest that first. It's also not limited to shortcuts in the start menu, you can index any directory and any file extension - You could add your Mp3 directory, Documents folder, Anything!

Add to all that the skinable design and less than 1Mb download size and you have a wonderful little application!.
