Nice and very fast but would work better with a Quicktime preview so you could preview audio & movies etc not just pictures. (Like iPasspartout)

Also, it would be more handy to select preset search locations from the front screen instead of the somewhat cumbersome route via preferences.

Useful, and it is a step in the right direction. But unfortunately it won't be able to compete well against both LaunchBar and Butler until it offers features far more compelling and better than their features.

It has some features that are unique and not present in those programs. I use LaunchBar but I've been looking into using LiveSearch in addition to LB because of that. I think it would be a good extension to LB, or possibly replace it if its abbreviation launcher is just as good as LB.

hands down the best true "finder" i've ever seen. i'll be buying live search when the trial period runs out.
