Candy Labs - Company Candy Labs began its life in the cold, dry winter of 2002 when Marek Sliwa and Dustin Mierau decided to join forces and produce software that is intuitive, useful, and just plain sexy. Both well seasoned in software development and design: Marek Sliwa is a leading software developer and a student of the sciences and mathematics at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. Dustin Mierau is a student of the arts, and spent two and a half years previously working at Napster as a developer of the Macintosh client (a.k.a. Macster). with candycomputingdesigndeveloperdevelopmentdustinjellyjelly-designlabsmarekmierausliwasoftwarestudentwindows Note: AppRocket is a total rip, but great website design, think jelly.
Quicksilver At first glance, Quicksilver is a launcher. Command Window When opened, it will create a catalog of applications and some frequently used folders and documents. Activate it, and you can search for and open anything in its catalog instantly. The search is adaptive, so Quicksilver will recognize which items you are searching for based on previous experience. It also supports abbreviations, so you can type entire words, or just fragments of each. When not in use, Quicksilver vanishes, waiting for the next time you summon it. with 10.4applefluentlaunchermaxosx10.4searchshortcuttigerworkflowby 5 users
