For Mac OS X users only at this time, Google’s Quick Search is their take on Blacktree Software’s excellent and much loved Quicksilver. The source code of Quicksilver was made available 18 months back via Google Code and apparently the guy behind it is now working on the Google Mac team, so maybe this isn’t such a surprise.
From ten minutes tinkering and reading the online docs, it seems to be stable and highly usable. Quicksilver fans will find themselves having to resist using deeply-embedded key combos and missing some of its ‘extensibility’ but for those who use Google’s stable of apps, this is a good addition.
