  3. I'd love to have the option to search google in whatever browser is currently running. For some reason, searching Google from a cocoa-app always opens Safari, which isn't always the best choice.

  4. I can install the preferences pane, and rules that aren't based on "Source Application" seem just fine.

    When I pick the application for a "Source Application" rule, the file picker shows up and I can select something, but it isn't then reflected in the rule in the list of rules. I tried anyways hoping it was just a visual glitch, but alas the rule isn't working.

    Choosy seems like exactly what I've been looking for if I can get a source application rule working!

  5. Choosy looks great and the idea behind it is exactly what I want to achieve. But it's just not working for me.

    It seems to be functioning, but nothing happens when I click a link that should be trapped. They just open in Chrome as usual. I don't even get the popup to choose a browser.

    I'm trying to get links in Gmail to my SSB apps like basecamp to open in the SSB. I installed ChoosyFluid, but when it runs it doesn't detect any SSBs to work with (i have 5 in my apps folder and on the dock)…

    Storing rules in iCloud might also be a good solution for this.

    In the short term, there is a file you can back up manually for your advanced rules: ~/Library/Application Support/Choosy/behaviours.plist

  7. With Choosy 0.9.1 beta there seems to be a problem when you try to open files (I tried with an HTML page) on your hard drive. Opening links (e.g. from Mail) works as expected but a file does not. Here is the console output (when Choosy starts):

    10/02/09 21:01:40 Choosy[514] Failed to get an int preference for runningMode (value was (null))
    10/02/09 21:01:40 Choosy[514] Failed to get an int preference for generalMode (value was (null))
    10/02/09 21:01:40 Choosy[514] Failed to get an int preference for displayMode (value was (null))
    10/02/09 21:01:40 Choosy[514] Failed to get an int preference for iconSize…

    There are several improvements to this in the 0.9.3 release:
    1) Choosy properly registers itself with the OS as a viewer app for HTML files
    2) There are separate settings for using Choosy as the default app for HTML files and the default app for HTTP URLs
    3) The advanced behaviour rules system allows you to set up specific rules for local files (e.g. I have them set to open in TextMate by default but if I hold shift while opening the file I get a TextMate/Firefox/Validator prompt)

    I’m hoping updates should solve the problems you’ve been having, let me know in the comments if there are any more issues. If not I’ll close this issue.


    There was another issue that’s just been fixed: There was a problem opening local files that had special characters (e.g. spaces) in the file names.

  8. Sometimes I'd like to open a link in a new browser window. If I'm inside a browser I can hold down (generally) shift when I click the link, and a new window will be opened. However, Choosy doesn't seem to expose a way to do this.

    I think this can be implemented without interfering with the existing modifiers feature, by having the behavior change occur once the popup is already open. Because not all browsers would support this, it could probably be signposted by changing the label on supported-browsers to e.g. "Firefox (new window)" once the modifier is pressed.

    Firefox…

  9. One of the main differences between browsers on mobile platforms, in particular on OS X, is their energy consumption. Consistently using Safari for example can result in a difference in uptime of more than 2 hours, compared to Chrome. It would be great to have the option to choose a favorite / best browser based on the state of the battery or based on the fact if the laptop is currently charging or not.

  10. Like if you visit a domain semi frequently, but not enough that you want to create a new rule, have a setting so it will automatically create the rule if you want it to.

  11. It would be neat if we could really tweak the UI of the browser selection dialog. I'm thinking similar to the way QuickSilver allows different skins for their interface. This way, Choosy can really fit into the overall aesthetic the user has set up.

  14. Integrate macOS 10.13 Mojave Dark Mode functionality into the Choosy preference pane so that it flows seamlessly with the rest of System Preferences in Dark Mode.

  15. I am using Choosy at work, where I use Firefox for work stuff, Safari for personal stuff, and Fluid for Gmail. I have Choosy set to launch links from Entourage in Firefox and links from the Fluid/Gmail application in Safari. Works great -- except that it's spawning an extra window when I click on a link in Fluid. Can you fix?

  16. If open-in-background can be made to work reliably, it would be a great additional option for Advanced rules.

  17. When I click a link from an email in Entourage, it brings the browser called by Choosy to the foreground. Would love to tell Choosy to always open links in the background

  18. Not sure what happened but after a Chrome restart, if I now try and select Chrome to open a URL, the choosy dialog graphic just moves down to where I clicked. I see the menu bar switch to "Google Chrome" however, so it seems like it's activating Chrome just not able to get the URL to it.

    Is there a log file or something I might be able to look at to try and figure out what has happened? Is this a known issue at all?

    I'm on Chrome 55.0.2883.95, OS X Yosemite (10.10.5).

  19. 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…
