With regards to the Spotlight tool in the menu bar, I'm not sure if I'll ever use it.


I've been using LaunchBar for quite some time now and Spotlight is just not anywhere near as fast as intuitive or as utilitarian as LaunchBar.


To be fair, Spotlight will come into its own at the system level where finding stuff away from the desktop and within applications is the requirement.


Now, having said that, how the hell did Apple manage NOT to add Spotlight functionality to Safari?


How on earth can I look at Safari and then have to drop back to Firefox to simply find stuff within a page?


I'd say someone over-baked the potato and then forgot to put the chili sauce on the hob...

    Spotlight and Launchbar do totally different things. I don't understand how you can compare them.

    And I don't know what you think "Spotlight technology" is, but it's not command-F. That's in every Mac application. You should check it out.

      I'm sure I've been very clear about what I mean, so I doubt there's anything else to add.

      I'm also very much aware of what Spotlight is and isn't.

      I'm not sure why you've added emphasis with "Spotlight technology". Those weren't my words.

      Please read through what I've written again. Clarity often comes second time around...

        YOU ARE AN IDIOT!!!!

        And jharrell is right, dumbass.

        Not only in Safari can you type command-F to find a word, (similar to "Spotlight technolgy" - disclaimer - not authors words.) but in almost every single browser, on every platform, it's available.

        So I have to assme that you're an idiot.
