Universal Actions Coming in Alfred 4.5


Alfred 4.5 brings a new Powerpack feature; Universal Actions. Take any text, URLs or files and perform actions on them from anywhere within Alfred or on your Mac using your Universal Action hotkey.


With the new Universal Actions, you can select text in your browser, a URL in an email or a file on your Desktop and pop up Alfred’s Actions panel to choose what to do with your content. Start anywhere and jump into action.

I’ve been using Suffix Web Search to get around this in previous version — and it really leveled up my use of Alfred. Very excited about this feature.
