  2. Migrating from an old machine to a new machine, I have to manually set up all my rules again. It would be nice to be able to export/import rules and settings.

  3. I would really appreciate the ability to choose between multiple user (profile) can be extended to other chromium based browsers, especially Vivaldi.

    This is top of the list for the next version.

    My goal is to support Brave, Vivaldi, Microsoft Edge, and Chrome Canary.

    There are some subtle differences between the different Chromium-based browsers, but it’s starting to come together.

  4. It would be nice if Choosy could support something other than a browser. Maybe mail applications, Media Players or something else.

  5. Firefox now allows container tabs. It'd be cool to support these tabs as options in Choosy, so when clicking a link I could open it in a Firefox "Work" tab or a "Personal" tab.

    Now that version 2.0 is out, the next focus for Choosy is tighter integration with browsers. I already added Chrome Profile and Incognito support, and would love to do the same for other browsers.

  6. Let's say I want to handoff a webpage from Safari on iOS to Chrome on Mac. How would I set up a rule to support this?

  7. it would be useful to have different behaviours for different network location, e.g., I would:
    - open in Safari when I'm at home
    - open in Firefox when I'm at office #1
    - etc.

  8. It would be useful in some cases that a URL has to be rewritten based on search and replace (incl. RegExp) some strings in a URL and send it to a specific browser.

    E.g.: Click on the URL http://system.xy.com will be rewritten to http://system.ab.com and then will be opened with Camino

  10. Profile support for ffox on the mac is a bit opaque, but I use it to keep a completely separate environment for e.g. online banking.

    From the shell ".../Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -ProfileManager" lets you create new profiles, and then ".../Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -ProfileManager -P ProfileName" will launch firefox with a particular profile.

    When you launch ffox this way, you can have multiple copies of it running at the same time. I don't really expect choosy to know what to do here automatically (prompt maybe?).

    However, when you quit any ffox instance Choosy loses track of the other running ffox processes and no longer shows…

    I would love to support Firefox profiles in the same was as Chrome profiles (where each profile can be treated as a distinct browser). Unfortunately, that hasn’t been possible to achieve so far.

    Firefox does have command line arguments that can be used to launch a new instance of the browser for a specific profile, but once it’s running there’s no way I can find to control which profile a newly opened link will be sent to (the closest I’ve been able to get is forcing Firefox to start a another new instance for the profile, which opens the link in the right profile, but also causes the previous profile instance—and any windows or tabs it had open—to quit).

    I’ll keep coming back and reviewing this—maybe it will become possible in future Firefox versions.

  11. I don't have a Paypal account and have no desire to create one after hearing bad things about it. However, I would still like to buy Choosy. You could use something like Amazon Payments or Google Checkout.

  13. Sometimes I would just like to copy the URL (like, when using Skitch, clicking the "Share" button tries to open the page in a browser, when I would rather just copy that URL and paste it in to an IM window.)

  15. I'd love to have this figured out to narrow it down more, but at apparently random times when I click on a link, instead of choosy showing up, the computer will freeze for ~15 seconds. Background task will continue (itunes playing music, etc.) but user input does nothing (cursor won't move, can't alt-tab, can't switch spaces, etc.)
    After the ~15 seconds is up, everything goes back to normal. If I click a 2nd time at that point, choosy will mostly likely behave normally.

    Also, and possibly related is choosy will be visually bugged.

    This looks like it might be related to driver issues with the Nvidia Geforce 7300 graphics card.

    Could those who are following this thread leave comments indicating which graphics card their Mac uses?

    Thanks for your patience while I fix this.

  16. Make choosing browsers keyboard friendly with shortcuts 1,2,3,4 (etc) default behavior and allow users to modify with their own definable keys when the modal window comes up to choose a browser. Example I could see someone using f for firefox, c or gc for chrome s for safari, and so on. Since we have to choose a browser often in the beginning anyways before we setup a ton of rules, best make it as painless as possible.

  18. This would allow me to make rules that say things like "when I click a link in Slack team A, use Chrome profile B to open it." Right now I have it set to always prompt for every link in Slack, but I almost always choose the specific Chrome profiles for specific Slack teams (work, personal, etc).
