Skylight – Quicksilver for Windows

One of the things that I have hated the most about the occasional move back to Windows is that I don’t have Quicksilver. That is just one of those things that drives you crazy when you need an application real quick and you hit alt-enter and nothing happens, grrr.

Now you can save the anger and check out Skylight.

“Skylight is a newly developed launcher and automation tool. Sleek yet functional, simple yet powerful, transparent yet universal. Boasting advanced habit learning and matching algorithms, infinite plug-in extensibility and the general smarts equivalent of a rat, it is purpose built to make your computing life easier.”

I haven’t had a chance to download and install it yet but as soon as I do I’ll give a quick review of it. I have to admit it looks beautiful, possibly better then Quicksilver when it comes to looks. Although Skylight says that it has “infinite plug-in extensibility” it doesn’t quite have as many plugins as Quicksilver does. But, if you are stuck using a Windows computer and you rely heavily on Quicksilver, this may be the way to go.
