Does anyone use Spotlight or any other search tool besides Alfred?

Recommended Posts

I am curious whether there are things that Spotlight may do better than Alfred for example. Perhaps by interfacing some results better. 


I am kind of all in on Alfred and it's great but I feel like if there were improvements made to Spotlight (if any), I wouldn't even know of them. 🤔

Yeah, I like HoudahSpot for a few things.


I still use Spotlight for irregular searches, especially in source code, because Alfred deliberately ignores so much in the pursuit of speed.


Also, saved searches/smart folders are awesome. My Smart Folders workflow was one of the first I wrote, and one that I still use the most.
