    1. Ivy versus Helm I only used Helm for a very short period of time so I'm unable to provide compare the two fairly. I never ran into issues with Helm when I did run it. The one thing I can say was there was always a nagging feeling that I wasn't using Helm to its full potential. It felt like I had my hands on a finely crafted ninja sword that could slay even the mightiest of foes with a single, effortless slash and I was using it to chop vegetables. Ivy has always felt simple and does exactly what I need it to. Its stayed out of my way for the most part and made some tasks, like switching between buffers and finding files, easy.

      Nice analogy
