butler - alternative to quicksilver

i stumbled across a new(-ish) mac app called butler (previously known as another launcher). it's kinda like quicksilver, but with a macosx tiger spotlight-ish feel to it. in short, it is another tool to quickly use your keyboard to get to things you'd otherwise have to drill thru menus and different interfaces. for example if you'd like to go get a number of someone in your address book without actually having to deal with the address book app.

it's much faster than quicksilver and although the UI isn't as pretty as quicksilver. it's actually more efficient, and it's donation-ware. i'm going to try it out for a while to see if i like it better than quicksilver. here's a quick screenshot of it in action:
