Now consider a few possibilities of “The Comma Trick”

  • Makes it easy to select a bunch of items from all over your Mac without a lot of extraneous clicking, drill down, or temp folders
  • Add a bunch of bookmarks to the stack, hit Enter, and they’ll open all at once in your browser (in handy tabs if you have that enabled)
  • Select a bunch of coworkers from your Address Book and you can mail them one or more files (and without even opening Mail.app).

You’ll need “Advanced Features” enabled in Quicksilver to use The Comma Trick.
