  1. Add support for links in airmail

    I am using Choosy to separate my work and personal browsing.

    I have set it up to show the prompt from links from the apps Airmail and Skype like this:
    https://dl.dropbox.com/s/qnkwqcli8mhmswg/Screenshot_2016-07-15_10-13-51.png?dl=0

    This works well in Skype, but it is not working in Airmail...

    I have another rule that shows the prompt when I hold FN and click on a link (in any app) and that rule does work in Airmail.

    PS:
    Thank you SO much for the latest update. It is amazing. I use choosy every day and I am very happy to see it getting better.

    I appreciate your…

        • Mass Deployment

          Does Choosy have a plist file which can be configured and packaged? We are looking at using Choosy in our enterprise but need to be able to deploy it. Any information you can provide on the location of configuration files/plists and under which profiles they are installed would be helpful

          Thank you

            • add support for the TOR browser

              You're probably already considering this but just in case you aren't :)

              Please add support for the TOR browser...

              • Different browser based on energy consumption

                One of the main differences between browsers on mobile platforms, in particular on OS X, is their energy consumption. Consistently using Safari for example can result in a difference in uptime of more than 2 hours, compared to Chrome. It would be great to have the option to choose a favorite / best browser based on the state of the battery or based on the fact if the laptop is currently charging or not.

                • If only one browser is running, use that browser

                  If I have any single browser running, I want to open links in that browser

                  If I have two or more browsers running, I want the Choosy prompt

                    • Ability to add a rules from command line (ideally Alfred App)

                      Choosy is awesome but if you have a new rule, it's kind of a pain to add. I would love to see an easy way to add simple rule like: open this url in this browser from command line (which then can be wrap around an Alfred workflow)

                        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.

                          • Popup wont allow me to select OK

                            When first installing the app and visiting settings i get a pop up "Choosy is disabled - To enable it, check the "Enable Choosy" box on the general settings page"
                            However the OK button seems disabled which doesnt allow me to get back to system preferences meaning i need to force quit. This also means i cant use the helper to uninstall. Is there anyway to enable Choosy from terminal or a settings file rather than through the Settings UI?

                            • Allow all apps (esp. Slack) to be considered a "source application"

                              For some reason, Choosy lets you pick some apps as a "source application" for rules, but ignores them. Slack is one example (and the one I find most frustrating).

                              You can create a rule that says "All of the following are true: Source application is "Slack.app". But even after deleting all other rules, a link clicked on inside Slack uses the default Choosy behaviour (in my case, popping up the list of browsers) instead of the rule behaviour.

                              I would like to be able to select Slack as a source application and have it work. Thanks!

                              • Support for native os x notifications

                                I am using choosy with fluid and I would like it so when I click on os x's built in facebook notifications, my fluid facebook app opens. I was unable to find a way to achieve this via advanced rules, and even if it is possible, it would be nice if the "source application" rule were just "source" and one was allowed to select things that aren't considered applications (such as os x notifications).
                                In the meantime though, is there a way to achieve this with the current state of choosy?

                                    When I right-click a link in Safari and click "Open with Choosy", it brings up a list of browsers. I would like Choosy to use my rules to determine which browser to use. Is this possible?

                                    • Choosy no longer supported by developer - same issue of not launching on restart

                                      It doesn't look like Choosy is being supported anymore. The same issue where it doesn't launch on restarting the PC still occurs and has been the same for the last 3 operating systems. I think the developer should at least update the product, or open source it so it can be fixed and supported properly

                                      • Choosy doesn't seem to work with Fluid sites.

                                        I use Fluid to make browsers for certain webpages, including Google.com. If no browsers are open and I need to quickly search for something, I can open it instead of a regular browser without having to wait for all its tabs to load.

                                        But when search results are returned, none of the links can be opened in the Fluid window. The Choosy window pops up, I choose the Fluid browser - the page flashes and nothing happens.

                                        Earlier Safari was closed when I tried this several times and something very erratic occurred: I chose Fluid, but It appeared as though…
