  1. I installed Choosy. I gave it one simple rule, which is to open all links with a particular URL in a particular browser. It doesn't work.

    I read through all of the documentation and couldn't find anything I'm doing wrong.

    I tested first with "use choosy for links" not checked. But clicking on links just opens in my default browser, as usual. I tested next with "use choosy for links," which asks me if I want choosy to be my default browser. I said yes. But clicking on links results in nothing happening at all.

    I tested by clicking links…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Thanks for adding opening specifically to incognito on Chrome! It's really great.
    The current issue I have is that even when specify to open non-incognito, Chrome seems to open the url in the front most window, even if it's incognito.
    I understand that this is this has always been the existing behavior, and I'm not sure if this is possible, but the new feature made me want more :)

    Thanks for the great product.

  6. When you set a rule to open links in a given browser, it'd be great to have an option to open them in a new window or in an existing one.

  7. I've set up a number of rules in Choosy, to pick specific Chrome profiles based on a URL match. This works very well, except from Slack. When I click a link in Slack, Choosy always shows me the list of browsers, rather than automatically picking the appropriate one.

    Perhaps this has to do with URL obfuscation/redirection being done by Slack? (no idea)

  9. I often get URLs in Adium and other places that were pasted from Firefox which leaves them incorrect by html-encoding the URL. This results in "http://foo.com/?bar&baz" rather than "http://foo.com/?bar&baz"

    A simple regexp substitution could fix this; allowing a generic external rewrite API would be even better.

    As a workaround, I'll see if I can write an app that accepts such URLs, and sends the corrected ones back to Choosy; then I can have Choosy send them to it rather than a 'real' browser…

  10. For example, if I open a page in one browser that should be opened in another browser, have it automatically send it to the other browser. For instance, if I type it in or if I copy a url into the url bar and press enter

    I can’t duplicate this bug – I’ve had no problems with a couple of recent versions of Twitterific. Could you let me know more details? (Twitterific version and any Twitterific settings that might be relevant to how it opens links)
    Thanks!

  12. I can't believe this is the intended behavior, but when I click on a link, Choosy sends the link to the web browser but does not bring it frontmost. I can't imagine what setting this might be. Is there something that I'm doing wrong?

  14. I haven't pegged it down, but in Snow Lep Choosy just stops working. Seems to be after a sleep. Example: normally click a link in Tweetie, get the Choosy pop-up. After sleep, a click just opens default browser. Haven't nailed it down to just sleep -- could be after a period of time, I'm trying to find the pattern. I have to logout to get Choosy working again, either way. (Noteworthy that I'm seeing similar behavior from Google Quick Search Box?)

  16. I'm looking for a tool that will route URLs by domain. e.g., things in my internal corporate domain go to one browser, Facebook goes to fluid, everything else goes to my "preferred" browser. Awesomely, Choosy's advanced rules support this, but, it's actually pretty cumbersome.

    The web address part is matching the whole URL, starting with the protocol, and ending with the path. So if I want to match all hosts in a given domain, without making a hole for malicious things like mallory.com/targetURL/1234, I need to use something like the following regexp:

    ^https?://([a-zA-Z0-9]+.)?facebook.com($|/.*)

    It works, but it's really unwieldy. I'd…

  18. The release notes for Choosy 1.1 say that it has Retina support, but when I click on a link that triggers the display of the browser prompt, the icons and text labels are still non-Retina.

    Running Choosy 1.1.1 in Sierra 10.12.2.

  19. Choosy is such a godsend for keeping ME in control of what browser launches what file/link!

    After wrestiling with OSX today to stop it from launching an app for a filetype of which I prefer another application to launch by default instead, I found myself thinking "damn, I wish there was a version of Choosy that worked with Application launching".

    Yes, I know you can right-click on a flie and tell it to open with another app (or option click and set it as a default), but Finder context menus can be VERY sluggish, depending on what other Finder extensions…
