wouldn't quicksilver do the exact same thing more easily?

it also might be useful to make the names not case sensitive if you can to make it faster to use.

Yeah QuickSilver is much better and i have used it but on my main computer I am running 10.2 so that is why I made this. About not being case sensitive it's not really possible because you need the eaxact name to get the activate command to work.

I know nothing about applescript, but is there any way to list all running apps so that you can match the app name against all apps? If so, it would not be that hard to make it case insensitive.

Actually i was wrong it turns out that it doesn't need to be case sensitive and was going to say something about it hear but then it slipped my mind. So when typing in the name you don't have to worry about caps.

nvm i got it, can you get rid of the {}'s so it is just /open Safari etc?

Isn't it easier to just type Command+Q??
