    1. It's considerably faster.
    2. It remembers your past searches, so if you typed "pho" and Photoshop was third on the list forcing you to arrow down, it'll appear at the top next time.
    3. You can map keyboard shortcuts and mouse gestures (via the Abracadabra plugin) to any action.
    4. It's extensible.

    Again, it's extensible. Among other things:
    • find contacts in your address book and open a new email message
    • perform simple calculations without opening another application
    • open any folder in the command line
    • upload a file using Cyberduck or Transmit
    • find a dictionary definition
    • open a Safari/Firefox bookmark
    • and my favourite: find and play any track in iTunes, browsing by artist/album/genre

    I'm pretty sure I answered that already. It's free. Find out for yourself.
