SlickRun. Free floating command line utility. Set up some aliases, type ‘em in and get instant action. Kind of like a hotkey utility but without the hotkeys.
SlickRun is designed to be far more intuitive than “hotkey” programs– You shouldn’t have to keep an awkward mental list of hotkeys for launching your favorite programs. Instead, just type whatever’s most natural for you to remember; with auto-completion, you’ll rarely type more than 2 or 3 characters anyway. Studies have shown that user-defined imperative words are much easier to recall than arbitrary characters like keystrokes.
