I forced myself to drop Launchbar and try out Alfred 1. I miss Launchbar. However, the Alfred 2 beta started last week and I like where it's going. The beta is already excellent and I'm looking forward to some truly unique and powerful workflows, like this one from Don Southard.
His workflow shows off some of the very cool things that can be done with the new Alfred 2 workflow system.
It is a workflow for interacting with your GitHub account, specifically for quickly launching repos, issues, and gists.
There are also some up at the Alfred blog.
