Slow Startup


One thing that really bothers me and this is why I have preferred to work with Launchy, and that is the slow loading time of this program. The icon will appear on my Toolbar, but if I right click on it, it ignores me and don't give me the options. I have to wait for about a minute before it responds. What is it doing? It can't be re-reading my files is it? If it does I would recommend that it shouldn't. Rather let the user refresh their index if they want too. Is anybody else experiencing this or is it just me?

Ah ok, so it reads the index. Why dont you let it use a cached version and only update when the user request an update or is this the 'saved' index that it loads?

Why I think it is important that it has a speedier startup is because people use launchers for exactly that reason : they want to accomplish things faster. Giving it a slow startup defeats that purpose.
