Keypirinha
Fantastic launcher. Essentially the Windows alternative to Alfred.

Q-Dir
Why have one Explorer window when you can have four? (Seriously, though, once you get used to it, it's fantastic.)

Boostnote
Notetaking app I began using a couple weeks ago. It's open source and oriented towards developers. Has a few bugs at the moment, but overall a very useful piece if software.

Last, but not least...

Steam
Helps refresh your mind when you're stuck for hours on an issue that won't go away.

I can totally recommend keypirinha!
Got is as portable version a while ago and abandoned wox and cerebro for it.

It is very lightweight, configurable and intelligent.

Wouldn't use any other tool anymore.

What are the benefits of Hyper over something like iTerm2?

Also, I'm looking for a new markdown editor. I like the idea of keeping everything in VS Code, but which do you like better between Bear and Caret?

I personally prefer iTerm2 because hyper seems to load a lot slower compared. This might not be an issue on super powerful machines but Hyper also takes more time to load than conEmu on my powerful PC.

Really doesn't outweigh the benefits of using iTerm2. The coolest part about Hyper is that it's written with web languages on Electron and loads Node.js modules, so the config is all done in JS. I've used it for a bit, but it felt slower than iTerm2 in almost every aspect (initial load, scrolling, etc)
