  1. +2, please! I very often want to add a "temporary snippet" easily, without having to fire up the Alfred control panel, find out where the snippets are hiding, create one, use it for one session, and then forget to delete it. :-)
  2. I really like the {clipboard} variable in snippets, but it would be nice to be able to modify the clipboard as part of including it. Regular Expression syntax is pretty heavy, but there are lots of references, and with the simple inclusion of a lib, it should be almost free to implement. But I'd be happy with any reasonably powerful editing scheme. In particular, I like to turn the clipboard into Google search links, but they really should be "HTMLized" so that spaces are changed into plus signs, punctuation is removed, etc. Here is an example: <a href="http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=Here is an example:">Here is an example:</a> But you really want the search to be "q=Here+is+an+example" (dropped punctuation) or "q=Here+is+an+example%3A" (HTMLized punctuation). With regular expressions, either would be easy to do.
  3. Regarding your latest blog on URL history, I use an ancient, hoary, never-updated app called History Hound that watches my web browsing and collects history. I'd love to see such a feature in Alfred!
  4. Perhaps something like this exists, but I couldn't find it. I sometimes would like to programmatically edit the clipboard in a snippet. For example, I'd like a way to change all spaces to plus signs ("+"), so that one could select some text, invoke a snippet, and have the text replaced with the edited content, like turning some text into a URL for Google: <a href="http://www.google.com/?q={clipboard:regex:s/ /+/}">{clipboard}</a> which for the text "Muscovy simplex" would yield: <a href="http://www.google.com/?q=Muscovy+simplex">Muscovy simplex</a> It seems this would have a great number of applications. (It took my "+" out whet I posted...)
