I asked about the usefulness of spotlight here, as I don't like the drag that spotlight causes all the time.
What I found useful in Spotlight is those two.
- word lookup : spotlight opens 'Dictionary' App automatically when it can look the word up.
- search for PDF
And one of the answer that I got is from 'Dan Ray' saying "Personally, I disable it in favor of Quicksilver.".
I don't use Quicksilver, but LaunchBar, but it seems to me that LaunchBar doesn't look up the pdf. And, furthermore, it has an option to search in Spotlight.
and My questions are
- Can LaunchBar can do the two things? Look into Dictionary, and pdf search?
- Can QuickSilver can do the two things?
If one of the tools can do that, I guess I just disable Spotlight, and enjoy the speedup.
