Quicksilver is a program that provides you with various ways to boost up your productivity while working on your Mac. With its help, you can easily and quickly launch applications, find and open documents, copy data with just a few clicks, get file location, and much more.

Before using this utility on your Mac you need to make several configurations. You can decide which Quicksilver plugins to be installed on your computer. For example, you can download and install the Calculator plugin. Afterwards, you can write mathematical expressions in the search bar and immediately get the results you need, directly from Quicksilver's interface, without launching Mac's Calculator app.

Once you enter your keywords in the search bar, the program will provide you with various action suggestions and you can select the one you need. For instance, if you enter the "Safari" keyword, the app reveals actions like Open, Move To Trash, etc. So, the app is very simple to use. Still, you have access to a built-in help manual if you require any assistance.

The only bad aspect I have to say about this application is the fact that it occasionally runs slow. This usually happens when accessing the Preferences panel of the program.

Still, Quicksilver is a helpful Mac utility that can definitely change the way you work on your computer and improve your productivity. It provides you with many useful features, is very simple to configure, and comes without a price.
