Spotlight feels more mature and efficient with Leopard. Small new features will improve the experience of using Spotlight. For example, web sites you visit are automatically indexed by Spotlight, allowing you to retrieve pages you visited recently based on their contents, right from Spotlight menu! Spotlight is now a great application launcher, for when you enter a few letters from an application name, this application will be selected among results, and you can launch it by simply pressing the Return key. And if the application doesn’t come up at the top of the list after you typed a few letters from its name, select it and next time it will appear on top automatically. Here is a quick look on these improvements.
