I now use Alfred as the main launcher for all of my web activity. When I need to search my site for a link URL, I use the search facility to do so. When I need to open a URL from my bookmarks, I go straight to Alfred. In fact, I’m starting to think that Alfred is fast becoming my go-to application for almost everything I do on the Mac now, which is both worrying and awesome in equal measure.
Despite the fact that Spotlight has come a long way over the last year or so, I still use Alfred for launching applications and searching for content on my Mac. The Powerpack feature (which I will cover in a forthcoming post) helps to cement my relationship with it, however there are some built-in options which I believe are simply unparalleled within Spotlight.
