I suggest you...

extending support to various media types, not just browser

It would be nice if Choosy could support something other than a browser. Maybe mail applications, Media Players or something else.

    At the moment, I use Magic Launch to provide rules for which application to use to open certain files. I just found out that I can use Choosy to work as a selector for any file.

    Here is my rule for selecting PDF application: http://glui.me/?i=5m44u74fe84xk09/2015-11-06_at_08.36_2x.png/

    What you need to do is to go to ~/Library/PreferencePanes/Choosy.prefPane/Contents/Resources/ and make an alias of Choosy.app and put it into your /Applications folder. Then you change whatever filetype you want to always open with Choosy.app and have the appropriate rule set up.

    I concur with support for multiple document types e.g. pdfs, office documents, etc. I'd love it if I PDFs could open with Acrobat with the shift key and Preview without a modifier key.

    Microsoft Office documents – i.e. choose between Office and iWork. PDFs – choose between Preview and Adobe Reader. If Choosy could be used for all filetypes it would be great!

    Extend Choosy's behavior to any user-chosen filetypes, to compensate for Snow Leopards broken Creator Codes.
