LaunchBar 4.3

I was a devoted LaunchBar user for a long time before switching to Quicksilver about two years ago. The new features in LaunchBar 4.3 have prompted me to switch back.

“Instant Open” lets you skip the Return key by just holding down the last key of the shortcut you’re typing. “Instant Send” lets you send the current selection from any app to LaunchBar just by holding down the space bar after invoking LaunchBar. There are a ton of other new cool features, too — really seems more like a 5.0 upgrade than a 4.3.

(Note to Quicksilver fans: they’re both great apps, and I know Quicksilver already has “Instant Open”.)
