QuickLaunch helps you to quickly start any installed application.
Simply start to enter the name of an application and QuickLaunch will find all programs matching these initial letters and show them in a list.
You choose an app from that list with the CursorUp/Down keys and launch it by hitting Return. Escape quits QuickLaunch.
This app runs on the latest Haiku Alpha release.
[Go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/quicklaunch-h/files for a .hpkg package for nightly Haiku images with package management]
For running in a newer nightly image you may have to compile from the included source yourself. Or try haikuporter from http://ports.haiku-files.org/.
