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. Could you add the option to send links to Instapaper and other similar bookmarking services? When we're in a browser, we can easily do that (especially with browser plugins) but this is not an option in non-browser apps. For example, it would be nice to open a link from my mail client and send it directly to Instapaper.

  2. Is this possible atm?
    I've tried Advanced section with Download Shuttle, by setting rule if web address ends in zip or dmg or iso, but Safari just downloads the file and Choosy does not intercept and parse to Download Shuttle.

    Ideas?

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  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. 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…

  9. 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)

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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?

  17. Choosy has taken over cmd+click in my terminal. This great when I want to open a link. It is not so great when I want to open a file in my IDE.

    For example, I get a merge conflict in my CLI and I want to cmd+click the file to open in my IDE. Choosy only lets me open it in a browser. It would be great if I can create a rule to ignore any file path that ends in .js. I tried to create a rule that would instead have it open a file that end in …

  18. When using the extension I always use the same browser (Safari) to open the links (from Brave), so clicking "Open with Choosy" and then selecting the browser is much slower than it could be.
    Maybe you could keep the current menu option and add a second one, configurable, e.g. "Open with Safari".

  19. Orion browser allows to install extensions from both Firefox and Chrome extension stores. I can install the extension but clicking the icon in the toolbar does nothing. It might be an issue on the Orion side of things, but I'm also opening this suggestion here in case there's something that can be done.
