    Hi All,

    What's your favored method to search for files and emails in Mac OS? -- among Spotlight, Google Desktop, and Quicksilver.

    I am a long-time Google Desktop user on PC, and consider that the benchmark for expectations.

    Thanks!

    I just use Spotlight. Although I have heard that Quiksilver is a much more powerful tool.

    I've never used anything other then spotlight, it works for me and as such I've never needed or wanted to use any other product for searches.
