A few days back I posted about colibri being a quicksilver ‘replacement’ for Windows Xp. After listening to one of the podcast episodes of Scott Hanselman (at I checked out AppRocket and decided to register it today. It’s only $18,- !

It’s well worth it. You can add directories that you want to be indexed, like your podcast directory (it will show extended info on mp3s if you want), tools directory etc. It sits happily on the top of your screen, and you activate it by hitting your hotkey, like alt+space. You can also perform fast web searches on wikipedia, google or amazon. Their website has some nice screencasts where you can check out how things work.
