Does it have a multiple clipboard items list like Launchbar?

Stopped using Quicksilver some time ago because it was so buggy, switched to LaunchBar but never really liked it. It just didn't feel very "Mac" and was far too complex. Alfred is quick and simple and just what you need, and its getting better with every update.

Also replaced Quicksilver for me.

I love this app! I bought LaunchBar a couple of months ago and, even though it has more features, it is difficult and intimidating. Alfred is minimal and just does its job so beautifully.

Very nice application, indeed!

I wrote them an email in which I suggested the following:

"I think it would be a killer feature, if each user could define their own websites to be accessible from Alfred"

And the answer was:

"We will be adding this kind of functionality in the near future to allow you to add whichever sites you want!"

I am very excited to use this new functionality.

Agreed. This app is getting better and better.

Very quickly on it's way becoming the new Quicksilver (already replaced it for me). For those looking for a lightweight app launcher and web search without all the bells and whistle of LaunchBar or Butler, this is it.

Now trying. I can't see the letters I type in but if I ignore this, it works. (10.5.8)

Really beautiful and simple to use.
Just plain awesome.

Even though Quicksilver is a great app too, it just does a way too much for what I need. It's also quite complicated.
