During my last Linux adventures, I found myself using a lot of manually downloaded
.AppImage executables or just binaries of applications that are not available in the softawre repositories of Manjaro / AUR.
I got tired of having to manually navigate the folders every time I wanted to open, let's say Firefox Developer Edition, until I found the binary.
Using this here allows me to just use the launcher search bar to quickly open those apps.
Less is more :D!
