    Spotlight is great. In the coming months we'll see added functionality when developers release plug-ins. But Spotlight itself definitely has room for improvement...

    For one, I think it needs a preview window; when you highlight an item, there should be box on the side that gives you basic "get info" information without having to "view in the finder." It could even generate a small preview, or a tool-tip.

    I submitted the idea to Apple's feedback. Anyone have other ideas or observations?

    I think there should be another field in the 'Save As' dialog box, so you can enter and save Spotlight comments when you save the file.

    I'd like it to show iPhoto titles rather than file names if an image is in the iPhoto Library.

    And the ability to use proper AND/OR statements in Smart Folders rather than | characters.

    iTunes Smart Folders could use that too...
