First off just want to thank you for creating such a kickass app. While i am really loving this app now what I've read about v2 is really exciting. Here are my thoughts on the subject:
1. -i think using modifiers is def the best/most logical way to go. I also think that when entering a modifier then the result window should switch to help complete that command.
-another feature which would be really amazing to have would be some sort of plugin interface a la TyepAndRun which could be used to add extra functionality to the app. some examples could be an active task list, system menu(reboot,shut down etc...), active windows list to name just a few. it would be even better if the plugin had the ability to specify the result windows columns, although this might be asking for a bit too much
. using the example above, one could type in +tasks and have the result window display all the current tasks with a column for name, cpu usage, and mem usage, then continue typing to filter the results which again could also be autocompleted and then hit the right arrow to bring up a context menu where an action could be performed.
2. once dir browsing is added i would be able to uninstall approcket for good. although i must say i think the way approcket handles dir browsing is prob the best way to handle it and it is very intuitive. using the arrow keys to go up/into a folder works very well IMHO as well as the feature where it displays the context menu if you hit the right arrow whilst highlighting a file. i also like the feature that once you've begun to browse dirs then filtering is automatically turned on so that any further typing filters within the current dir.
3.-other things i would love to see include the ability to select and execute multiple results. ie i have an alias similar to the default search alias where it would be great to type in alias query and then open the website/files for the first three results
-i also think autocomplete by using the TAB key (user definable) should be used to autocomplete the first/highlighted result.
-indexing and performace tweaks, especially in bringing up the window. i think most users of this app have systems that could handle it if this app had a bigger footprint and cache. it is made for power users after all
i really look forward to the next release and i must say that finding this app has changed the way i interface with my pc for good.
