Keyboard Maestro is a program designed for users who wish to boost up their productivity while working on their Macs. With its help, you can define various types of global hotkeys for immediately launching programs, accessing websites, opening documents, and so much more.

The app's interface is very intuitive. However, you might need to know a couple of things if you need Keyboard Maestro to trigger scripts. The program doesn't come with a built-in help manual, but you can find plenty of information on the homepage of the developer.

The utility can trigger various types of actions. They're all organized based on their type, on the left side of the interface. You can use the integrated search utility to immediately find the type of the task you wish to add to your macro list.

The best thing about this program is the fact that you can define multiple tasks for a single global hotkey. To be more exact, by hitting a certain shortcut key, you can trigger multiple tasks in a sequence. For example, you can create a macro with the Command+Shift+0 for immediately launching your default web browser and accessing a website of your choice.

Briefly, Keyboard Maestro is an efficient utility for defining a macro that provides you with multiple useful features, works perfectly, and comes with a fair price. You should definitely give it a shot.
