  1. add support for mailto links. E.g. Open Mail or Entourage

    If I click a mailto link within a web site, I would like the option to contact the link on a personal basis (using Mail) or for business purposes (using Entourage)

  2. extending support to various media types, not just browser

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

  3. Fix bug where Choosy is disabled on startup

    Choosy is installed and working beautifully, and set as standard browser in Safari. Until I restart... Almost every time I restart (I'd say 80-90 % of the time), Choosy has disabled itself in the System Preferences and Safari has taken the position of default browser.

    So the first thing I need to do when I restart the computer is to go to System Preferences, click OK in the "Choosy is disabled" dialogue box (that's a very annoying little box), and check "Enable Choosy for links" and Enable Choosy for HTML files".

    This was the case in the beta versions and…

    I’m still looking into this, but it seems to have more to do with the OS than Choosy.

    This issues can sometimes be related to using File Vault. If you are using File Vault you could try disabling it. See this post on SuperUser for more information:
    http://superuser.com/questions/2735

    If you’re not using File Vault there are some suggestions about resetting your Launch Services settings in this Apple Forum thread: http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=8965818

    If none of that helps, please leave a comment letting me know.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

  4. Allow the browser selection to be Spaces aware

    I'd love to be able to select my default browser based on the current space. This means i can use separate browsers in separate spaces for programming/work vs. personal/leisure.

    It would be even better if I could set domains/regex patterns on a per space basis, allowing me to restrict the current space to certain domains and force me to focus on the job in hand!

  5. Add ability to open in a Firefox container tab

    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.

  7. Add export/import of rules and setting

    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.

  8. add an option to specify behaviour based on network location

    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.

  10. Stop Choosy from running in AppTranslocation mode

    Choosy runs in AppTranslocation mode, even though the .prefPane file has been moved after downloading. This makes Little Snitch throw up a confirmation dialog after every restart.

    I eventually intend to change Choosy’s architecture so that it’s just an app, and no longer has the preference pane. Once that’s done, Choosy would run from the /Applications folder and would no longer be subject to translocation. However, that’s a big change.

    In the meantime, Choosy itself continues to work correctly.

    Little Snitch could probably do something to support apps running under app translocation (e.g. allowing rules to be set for an application’s bundle identifier, so that the path it was executed from wouldn’t matter) but that is outside of my control.

  11. select in the prompt by typing the start of a browser's name

    Add the ability to select a browser by typing the first letter or two of its name as well as by arrow keys

  12. Add payment options besides Paypal

    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. Fix modifier key feature - text area to record keypress does not appear

    Please fix this bug. The little "text area" to record modifier keys does not appear when selecting the modifier key option.

    It's unusable. Not sure if others have seen this issue crop up as well but I've had it since the Mojave beta and it's persisted past other Mojave fixes.

    See the screenshot here: https://imgur.com/ofLUlfG

  14. Temp freezing the computer or visual bug when clicking on a link

    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.
    See screenshot:

    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.

  17. Make the rules work with Dashboard.

    Right now if you specify the app as Dashboard, it doesn't actually follow the rule. It would be nice to work with Dashboard. Or even individual widgets.

  18. Implement URL rewriter

    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

  19. Choosy crashes Chrome

    Did Choosy stop supporting Chrome? Every time I tried it in the past week it crashed my Chrome browser. I tried reinstalling it and it doesn't even show up in the list of extensions (but it does for Safari and FF). My version of Chrome is 68.0.3440.84 (Official Build) (64-bit).

  20. Workaround for Safari dialog in Sierra 10.2.2?

    In Sierra 10.2.2, Safari (10.0.2) systematically displays a dialog whenever I invoke "Open in Choosy" in the contextual menu:

    "Do you want to allow this page to open Choosy?"

    Is there any way to avoid that extra step every time?
