Keyboard Maestro: 8 unexpected uses for the old-school Mac-hacking tool

Anders Lundberg | Sept. 24, 2014
OS X includes all kinds of tools to help speed up your Mac's workflow--scripting, keyboard shortcuts, and Automator among them. But the venerable utility Keyboard Maestro can be more useful, in more different ways, than any of those built-in tools.

Set up your Mac for different locations: You could have the Mac set volume to 0, open Mail, hide Safari, and quit Skype whenever you connect to your work Wi-Fi.

Automate filling in website forms: With the Safari and Chrome control actions, you can cook up some pretty advanced macros to make web based work less tedious.

There's obviously more the app can do, but I hope this gives you some idea of its power and scope.
