Mac users often gloat about how their operating system is much more intuitive to use than PCs. Those who know and use Quicksilver value the importance of what can be considered as a real swiss army knife for all things on Mac. Luckily, with Dash, PC users can prove to Mac users that they too have a solid launcher application.
Dash is a menu bar application that can launch your applications, reveal online searches or find emails. We love how the application reveals its results as you are typing. You can even set the speed at which results appear and the number of elements in the list. The application lets you set keywords for the programs you use most often and you can customize it with more than a dozen skins.
The web search was quite impressive. Just start typing the name of your search engine, like Google, then press space bar, your search and press enter. Dash will immediately show results in a browser page.
Despite the fact that Dash keeps hiding back in the command bar, it's an ideal companion for your desktop and relieves you of the pain of searching through your PC for applications.
