  1. Since I installed macOS 11.6, Choosy v2.2.1 shows the main window every time I restart my computer. Is there a way to allow Choosy to start in background mode? I have to close the main window every time I turn on the computer and it is a bit annoying. Thanks!

  2. New Safari (macOS Monetary) adds the new Tab Groups feature. Add support in Choosy to open a link a specific Tab Group

  3. I'd like to open spotify URLs (e.g. https://open.spotify.com/track/foo?si=bar ) in Spotify. I tried adding Spotify as a browser without success.

    As a workaround maybe an Automator app could be used and invoke Spotifys Applescript capabilities? How is the URL invoked with an app from Choosy?

  4. I gather that Choosy 2.2.1 is a universal app and should run natively on M1 computers. However, the installer package requires Rosetta. Is there a way to repackage the app so I do not need to let the system install Rosetta?

  5. In rules, the modifier key always includes Escape whenever I try any modifier key or combination. Escape creates problems. If I try to leave it as Escape, it usually triggers a system alert or exits. I want a backdoor that if I want to open a link in a browser and have a rule that opens the link in a specific browser, I can use the modifier key to force choosy's menu. That could be an app-wide preference instead of the rule. Or else how to make the rule not include the escape key by default?

  6. Would it be possible to be able to configure additional steps before (and potentially after) the URL is opened, ideally to include "Run Script"? Like Hazel but for URLs.

    The URL could be sent as a parameter to a script and its result optionally used to replace the URL.

    This would permit (depending on the script):
    - the URL to be rewritten
    - a particular Keyboard Maestro macro to be run
    - a particular browser window to be opened (all links from Mail open in a single window, say)
    - swap to a particular desktop first (and use the version…

  7. Lots of web apps don't provide actual links, but instead work using onClick window.open() techniques. These don't seem to trigger Choosy for me.

  8. I have several Choosy rules to open links differently based on which application is active. But for the 'Fantastical' 3 app, this rule doesn't trigger. Any ideas?

  9. If Chrome is not already open, a new window is created with the clicked link. Then the Chrome window with previous browser session opens on top of that, hiding the new window.

    Ideally Choosy should just open the window with the previous session, and add a tab to that.

  10. open -a /Applications/Choosy.app https://google.com
    

    correctly opens the Choosy picker, but

    open -a /Applications/Choosy.app test.html
    

    always opens Safari.

  11. I guess that's on the list for the next version anyway, but maybe it is worth considering a small update version in case the next prod version is not on the horizon anytime soon already :-)

  12. I'd like a rule clause that says "If <some-particular-browser> is running".

    It's a little strange, but my favourite browser is a script that opens a link in a new Chrome window.

    I want to be able to say: "If Chrome is running, use my favourite browser".

    Hmmm, after writing that (and sorting out in my head what I'd actually need from Choosy), I can see it might be a bit niche.

  13. I'd like to be able to exclude some browsers from the prompt. For example, I added Zoom as a browser so I could set up a rule to automatically open all Zoom links in Zoom, but I don't really want Zoom in the prompt.

    Thanks!

  14. It would be great to set choosy as the default for a specific file extension and have it display a list of multiple apps to choose from. Ideally it would be configured so that it could handle multiple files at once.

  16. I have multiple chrome profiles spread across spaces (macOS 11.5.2). Whenever I choose a chrome profile for opening a link, it opens properly in the correct browser but then goes to my space 1, which contains my Safari browser. Is this a bug?

  17. I am trying to use Slack as the "browser" for all Slack message links (mostly coming from Todoist)

    • I have it setup in Choosy but when I click on a link, it puts the Slack app in focus but leaves me wherever I was, ie it doesn't take me to the message that was linked to

    • as a test, I set the browser to Chrome and it works properly

      • Chrome opens a new tab
      • Chrome then "forwards" the message link to Slack
      • Slack comes to the front and takes me to the message

    So the link is right. It seems…

  18. I've configured Mac OS X Big Sur to use Choosy 2.2.1 as my standard browser. In Choosy, I've got a rule to open a website with my favorite browser. But that doesn't work. Links are not opened anymore.

    I’ve not had any reports of problems in Big Sur other than the few comments here, and Choosy is working fine for me on Big Sur on both Intel and M1 Macs.

    Can anyone provide any further detail beyond “it’s not working”?

  19. Hi! Happy choosy customer, thanks for the app!

    I have a complex set of choosy rules to manage work links vs. personal links.

    Currently I have to manually add these rules each time a new url is encountered that is specifically for 'work' or 'personal'

    I'd like the option to add new rules as part of the link-opening flow.

    something like:
    I click a link to www.google.com/foo/bar -> choosy asks me which browser I want to use
    I hold down 'r' while clicking 'Chrome'
    Choosy responds with 'Always opening www.google.com/foo/bar' in Chrome.
    -> rule is added and can be…

  20. I'm trying to get my ms teams links (I click these several times a day) I can point to the app and open the meeting. currently this opens the app but does not deep link to the meeting I just have to go via a browser which then leaves a window open.

    I found this on a different product but I'm not about to switch just for this feature.. be nice if it worked though :)

    love the product btw
