I think i'll give some help, since mouser is busy right now.
index: Yep, no index, and you're right as it needs to be done. Still won't be included in V2, though.
adaptive search: done
non-contiguous search: not done (i also find it a bit confusing), but multi-word works (f f
would find firefox)
better look: I've talked with mouser just yesterday about this. It indeed does make a difference for many people, and it'd probably get more people to use farr, BUT, the time it'd take to change the looks would probably be better spent in improving other parts of farr, at the expense of losing some "costumers" because of the looks.
Also, farr's looks have been dramaticaly improved with the new "large icons display", even though it still isn't as eye-candy as the competitors.
IMO, even more important than the looks, are the webpage and the screencasts, which make a huge difference on first contact with farr.
simple/advanced mode: done.
making google searches, opening firefox/explorer bookmarks, finding start menu items, being able to navigate and find the most important system folders (my documents, etc) out of the box should be a priority.
yep, all of those work out of the box, although the bookmarks part is done through a plugin, which might not be included in the default package (not sure, as this is mouser's decision).
Another way to solve this problem would be to just carry farr on your usb disk, since farr is fully portable
Also, farr can now work as a calculator, a process killer, a clipboard enhancement, a service starter/stopper, program unninstaller, etc etc etc, all through plugins.
As for the name... I do agree that there could be better names, but i think it's a bit late to be changed.
Thank you for your post, amadawn, it has contributed in 2 ways: to remember what else still needs to be done, and how well farr is now compared to other launchers
Quoting mouser on our conversation (i hope he won't get upset
<mouser> it IS a very huge leap from v1
<mouser> in fact when i think on v1 now i get sick
Maybe you should take a look at farr V2 beta, or wait for its grand launch next week. I think you'll be positivelly surprised
