Snippet auto-expansion is new to Alfred 3, and is an evolution of the existing Clipboard History and Snippets features we already loved in Alfred 2.
Boost your productivity with in-line snippets expansion, a new Alfred 3 feature!
Clipboard History is a Powerpack feature that has saved me hours of searching for links and re-typing text. More than once, it also saved my bacon when my browser or text editor crashed.
Release notes for Alfred 0.8 (December 2010), adding Clipboard Snippets, the "Eject" command, the ability to customise fallback searches and the much-loved usage stats!
