I use Alfred probably every 5th keystroke on my Mac. Well worth funding the development of this essential app.

Alfred serves as a replacement for Spotlight, giving you quicker access to a much wider variety of actions and files than Spotlight does. Absolutely worth downloading & learning the shortcuts - you'll thank me later!
