Google takes Quicksilver Pro … I hope it’s coming to Windows!

Google has launched a new Mac application based on Quicksilver called Google Quick Search Box.  At first I missed why I would want a quick Google search on my desktop, but when I read this lifehacker post on the topic it became clear this was really Quicksilver reborn as a Google product.

I’ve used Quicksilver for years and there are some awesome extensions to make your life easier and productive without ever touching the mouse.  On the PC, I use Launchy though it pales in comparison to the functionality in Quicksilver (macros and application plug-ins come to mind).  I really hope this one makes it over to the PC side so I can use it across all my systems.

    I Love QuickSilver and use it all the time on the Mac. Much better than a search in windows (google or otherwise) and even Spotlight on the Mac side to use as a quick app launcher or for tagging specific often used folders.
