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'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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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)

  4. 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

  5. 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 :)

    https://github.com/johnste/finicky/issues/137

    love the product btw

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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 :-)

  11. I love that Choosy supports individual Chrome profiles. Unfortunately the feature does not work with Google Chrome Beta or Google Chrome Canary. Would it be possible to support profiles in those browser variants as well?

  12. Would like to be able to create a rule based off my current active Desktop on mac. I utilize multiple Desktops for a personal screen and a work screen with different browser requirements.

  13. I'd love to be able to sync the rules between multiple machines so I don't have to re-create rules on my desktop, laptop, etc.

  14. Since I updated to latest, every time I use choosy to open a link, I get 2 windows that open. One the correct URL and one a blank window

  16. When opening a page in Firefox, Firefox will spawn an additional new window (set to whatever is the preference of "Firefox Home" or blank page). This happens when Firefox isn't running aka is a cold start. The Firefox preference "open links in tabs" solves this problem, but only if Firefox is running.

    This is seen on macOS Big Sur running the latest version of all the apps.

  17. I think this started when I upgraded Firefox. I just updated Choosey to 2.2.1 and I see the same behavior. Any link I try to follow via Choosey, when I select Firefox, it goes to my default Firefox homepage instead of the intended link. This doesn't happen w/ Safari.

  18. It would be very useful to be able to open any URL from anywhere in macOS within Choosy via a macOS Share extension.

    This feature would have the added bonus of making the Choosy Safari extension optional.

  19. 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.

  20. since updating chrome to latest version today (86.0.4240.198) - the responsiveness from clicking on links and choosing the browser to the link being opened in chrome has been really slow!
    any ideas? is it just me?
