True Launch Bar - Today's Mod

Do you have a tricked-out quick launch bar on your taskbar? The quick launch bar has its benefits and drawbacks, but it can certainly make it easier to launch your most often-used applications with the click of a mouse. Although I still prefer the speed of a text-based launcher, there are days when I want to do everything with my mouse and for that I like having a nicely organized quick launch...

Quicksilver ?51 Available

Quciksilver, the popular, perpetually in googlebeta "unified, extensible interface" for OS X has been updated to β51. If you haven't seen the little update screen yet, you will soon. The update is mostly bugfixes for the core plugins; It looks like all of them got overhauled. More interesting is the release note that build 3800, a.k.a. β51, is "Final Tweaks," capital F, capital T. Does...

Launchy - Today's Free File

It seems like this series of application launchers just won't stop.

Dubbed simply (and accurately) Hotkeys, this utility is pretty fantastic. Like most hotkey configuration utilities, Hotkeys allows the user to setup specific key combinations...

Find and Run Robot - Today's Free File

Well, it looks like it's Application Launcher week here at Download Squad! Reader Angel points us to yet another text-based application launcher, this one titled Find and Run Robot by Donation Coder. She quite rightly points out that in its default configuration, it's not particularly sexy, but it does include a few very slick skins to spruce things up.   Find and Run Robot can be...

SlickRun - Today's Free File

SlickRun is my newest favorite utility. It's a very small and simple application launcher, but packs some pretty powerful features into it's tiny self. Along with allowing you to assign keywords to applications and launch them, you can quickly navigate to both local folders on your filesystem as well as websites. Simply hit the SlickRun hotkey combination, type your destination and press Enter,...
