I wanted to share a moment of ***Quicksilver|http://quicksilver.blacktree.com/*** Zen I had tonight. I had just downloaded a program, which was automatically uncompressed by Safari. A new window automatically opened showing the application’s icon. Then Quicksilver stepped in. I typed the first letter of the icon’s name to select it. I hit ctrl-space to bring up Quicksilver. I hit cmd-g to grab the selection from the Finder. I hit tab and typed ‘co’ to copy, hit tab again and typed ‘ap’ to select the ‘Applications’ folder. I hit return. Program copied. It might sound like a lot, but keep in mind this took just about four seconds and my hands never had to leave the keyboard.
Thanks for the heads-up. I didn’t know about the grab thing.
