Alfred rocks, so why would I want this (rhetorical question)?

HI Martin! Good question! There really is no right answer here. If you are already invested in Alfred, there probably isn’t a reason to move over to Launchbar as they are very close. I like some of the navigation and instant send features and have used it a while so it’s a part of my workflow!
