在搜狗发布最新版的拼音输入法(旧的是2.0,现在的是3.0)之前,我一直都是用谷歌的拼音输入法,其中很大一个原因是因为谷歌的输入法有网络同步功能。 在功能上面,个人认为搜狗输入法是更胜一筹,但因为它没有网络同步功能,所以我一直都把搜狗输入法作为“后备”而已。 前几天搜狗输入法终于更新了,最新版(3.0)包含了网络同步功能,于是搜狗终于从“后备”变成了“正选”。 下面是几个我转向搜狗输入法的原因:

Quicksilver is one of my favorite apps on the Mac platform, but what about Windows? Is there anything we could use on Windows that acts more or less the same as Quicksilver on the Macs?
