    Hi,

    Is there a way to create a shortcut that will launch an application? What I want to do is bind say: ctrl+1 to firefox, ctrl+2 to ichat, and so forth. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    There may be an easier way to do it, but I use Quicksilver for that purpose (of course, this software can do a lot more than just that). Once you have installed it, you can add your keyboard shortcuts using the 'Triggers' menu.

    Thanks for the link -- will definitely use quicksilver if I can't find a native way to do it.
