Humanized Enso

New utility for Windows users, sort of like a cross between Quicksilver and Mac OS X’s Services menu. Aza Raskin, the president of Humanized, is the son of the late Jef Raskin, to whom the software is dedicated. One interesting idea is that to enter the mode where you type Enso commands, you just hold down the Caps Lock key. Seems a little vague overall, and the demo video emphasizes hype instead of clarifying exactly how it works.

Walt Mossberg gives it a pretty positive review in today’s Wall Street Journal.
