Quicksilver: Arrow Into Web Pages

Just discovered (yet another) unlighted corner of Quicksilver. As with an earlier set of tricks, this one uses the mighty right arrow.

  1. Invoke Quicksilver (ctrl-spacebar by default)
  2. Type the first few letter of the title of a web page 
  3. When you’ve found the page you want, right-arrow into the page
    • Give it a second to think
    • Quicksilver will return a list of all the links in that web page
  4. Select one of the links and hit ENTER to visit the page.


Pretty neat. Uses the built-in HTML kit to fetch an updated version of the page on demand.

I think this requires the Safari Bookmarks module although it appears to work with the Safari History module too. I believe it also probably requires a recent version of the app (available from the QS site). Haven't tried it in a Firefox setup, but I suspect it works the same.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
