I'm not clear on how this is better than the research barroom built into the Jump Card of Windows 7.

I believe this is to a greater extent for XP, which didn't bear that feature originally, although microsoft did minimal brain dysfunction background seek in updates.

  • By default the search-index in Launchy is smaller, and consequently faster.
  • It adapts to your former choices (e.g. character "ex" and coil down to Excel alternatively of Internet Explorer. Next metre you eccentric "ex", Excel is at the top.)
  • It supports plug-ins for specialised actions (e.g. calculator, switching 'tween running play programs). I wrote a plug-in myself that searches our caller intranet and opens the castigate projection folder, so it isn't fair for the small stuff.
