I’ve been using Butler for awhile now, and I always thought it was good, but, I’ve just come to realize that its great. I finally had some extra time to configure it a little bit more, and found out about the abbreation’s feature, which quite simply, is amazing. I’m amazed at how fast it is, its got to be at least 10x as fast as spotlight; and you can customize the search panel to only show certain types of files. Heres a screenshot of it in action:

Butler's Abbreviation Feature

I’m amazed at how one developer can create something much more useful that Apple’s spotlight (Butler cant search the content of files though…). I thought I would be using spotlight alot when i bought OS X 10.4, instead I’ve used Spotlight only about 5-10 times. Maybe its because most of the time I just want to find a file by its name, and not by what contents it has. I’m probably going to be disabling spotlight soon since Butler’s abbreviation feature is far superior.

If your a Mac user, I highly recommend you download Butler and try it out. Don’t forget to donate to Peter if you find Butler useful!
