Welcome to Choosy’s official feedback forum. Do you have an idea? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? I want to hear from you!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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!

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

  9. Rules can be fiddly to set up and I want to add a variation on a rule. It would be nice if I could duplicate an existing rule and then modify it.

  10. There are a number of features that have been lingering. Human constraints are obviously a factor and this is just part of life. What if people could throw dollars to sponsor a particular feature they liked?

  11. I'm using Chrome and Epichrome as two separate full-featured browsers and have added both to Choosy.

    Under "Browsers" they show with their respective app names, but both show the Chrome icon.

    In the Prompt, they both show up as "Chrome" with the Chrome icon.

    While it might be a bit different than usual as these browsers are heavily related, they show correctly in the MacOS Dock and switcher.

    Please detect these names correctly, or allow customising the prompt names and icons.

  12. When specifying a string for a web address, allow "contains in domain" as an option.

    For example, I have an account with Fidelity. They have multiple domains and subdomains, so I'd like to be able to write a rule that triggers for pages on "fidelity.com" or "www.fidelity.com" or "fidelitynetbenefits.com" to open in the specified browser, but I would not want the rule to trigger for "otherwebsite.com/reviews/fidelity"

    I know this can be approximated with regex, but that seems finicky, and I think this issue may occur often enough to be worth having a dedicated option.

  13. Because "#search=..." functionality does not seem to work in Chrome.

    My potential project needs urls to launch in Firefox from Chrome using urls of the suffix form: ...pdf#search="wordToSearchFor" (Since I control the urls, yes I can use the Choosy url API prefixes)

  14. I propose adding a trigger that allows you to create rules based on the time of day. As an example, I might make a rule that if it is between 9:00-17:00 then open Chrome. And if it's between 17:00-23:00, then open Firefox. And if it's really late, open Safari to drive me nuts ;-P

  15. 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

  16. If, for example, I type in a GitHub URL or click on a link in the browser that points to a GitHub URL, and I have Choosy set up to open GitHub URLs in a different browser (such as a single-site browser), it would be nice if the Choosy extension could automatically capture that URL and open it in the specified browser, rather than depending on me clicking the Choosy toolbar icon.

    Does this make sense?

    Basically, links in the browser should behave like links in, say, Mail, and open in the correct browser rather than just the browser you're…

  17. When setting up a rule, if the resulting action ends in "...", the interface does not make clear what the user should do to finish the setup process. The simplest way to make the interface clearer would probably be to change the text on the "Change" button to something like "Pick" or "Choose", and perhaps use a placeholder with text like "No browser chosen" where the browser icon and browser name would be once a browser has been chosen.

    If you were to redesign the interface a little bit more, it might make sense to make the entire area below…

  18. Hi,

    Office 365 an may be other have something link "secure links" which changes the incoming to a verification services. Problem with that links that they are not my configured rules.

    So it would be nice to add custom url shortener services which Choosy can use to expand urls.

  19. When I try to add a Google account to an app like Fantastical, the oAuth link results in a 400 Error when Choosy is used to pass the URL to the browser.

    For example, when using Choosy to pass the link from Fantastical to Safari, the requested URL starts with "https://accounts.google.com/signin/oauth/legacy/consent?authuser=0&part=blahblahblah....."

    This URL results in a 400 Error ("The server cannot process the request because it is malformed. It should not be retried. That’s all we know.").

    When I disable Choosy, and just have the link open in the default browser, the URL passed looks different. It looks…

  20. 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 :-)
