FREE and lightweight Windows utility that allows you to quickly and naturally access items you commonly use.
Guillotine is a FREE and lightweight Windows utility that allows you to quickly and naturally access items you commonly (and uncommonly) use like programs, bookmarks, contacts, and web searches. The idea is to find things quickly just by typing a few keys, selecting your item, and going on your merry way. It's much more intuitive than hunting down those items as you normally would. It may take a while to break your old habits, but once you do, you'll see how much more intuitive it is to your normal workflow.
- Fast access to files in common directories (e.g. Start Menu, Quick Launch, My Documents, etc.).
- Fast access to Outlook contacts and bookmarks in Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera.
- Fast access to search sites like Google, Yahoo, Wiki, etc.
- Quickly browse your file system using the arrow keys on your keyboard.
- Configurability of all of the above.
- Plugin architecture allows plugin developers to add any type of functionality they want.
- Fixed possible crash when checking for updates
- Settings weren't getting saved if Guillotine got shut down automatically when logging off.
