A Keystroke Symphony For OS X

Keyboard Maestro has been released as a beta version for use on OS X. Keyboard Maestro is a hot key utility that allows users to customize keyboard short cuts. According to Keyboard Maestro:

Keyboard Maestro allows you to define any number of hot keys that can be activated anywhere simply by pressing a user definable keystroke. While the final release of Keyboard Maestro will have many useful hot key types, the first Public Beta release of Keyboard Maestro has the following hot key types already built in:

  • Switch to last application
  • Open files
  • Launch URL
  • Many, many more to come in final release!
  • Public API for 3rd Party hot keys in final release!

Keyboard Maestro also incorporates the wildly popular Classic MacOS application switching utility, Program Switcher. In fact, Keyboard Maestro is written by the author of Program Switcher. With the Program Switcher feature, you are able to launch, switch, and quit applications with a simple keystroke. Keyboard Maestro brings to MacOS X what Classic Mac users have been enjoying since 1994 - the most refined application switching utility there is!
