What can this do that Albert, which we already have in the repo, can't do?

Hi Josh, I'll give a shot to Albert. I have never used this one. Thanks.

Albert use Qt, while Ulauncher use GTK.

I fail to see how that provides additional Value Add over Albert though.

For Gnome/Mate users, Ulauncher need less dependence.
Except for this, Albert is better.
