I suggest you...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. choose a browser automatically based last one used.

    When you click on a link Choosy deermines which of it's browsers was last the front application and selects that one without user's further input.

      • Open link in browser in background broken in Mountain Lion

        On Lion, when I Command-Clicked on a link in another app & then chose a browser in Choosy, that link would open with the browser remaining in the background.

        This behavior appears to be broken in Mountain Lion. No matter what I do, when I Command-Click on a link in another app & select Safari, for instance, Safari immediately jumps to the foreground.

        Any chance this can get fixed? Without it, Choosy is kind of annoying
        instead of awesome, like it normally is. :)

        • Not working on 64bit 10.6.3. Menu icon missing, no reaction when clicking links

          I just tried Choosy on Mac OS X 10.6.3 64bit. Unfortunately, it isn't working, When clicking a link, absolutely nothing happens, even though I defined actions. Also, no menubar icon is displayed, no matter what.

          • Create a service to "Open URL with Choosy"

            Mac OSX services are useful and available system-wide. Sometimes we want to launch URLs from various apps and the context menu usually provides quick access to services as does quicksilver so this is a universal protocol for macs now.

            • Choosy doesn't distinguish between standard Chrome and SSB Chrome

              I'm using Chrome SSBs on Mac for sites like Gmail.

              First, I'd like all links clicked in the Gmail SSB to open in the standard Chrome instance, without needing to right click and select "Open with Choosy".

              Second, even when I do click "Open with Choosy", the link will open in the wrong chrome instance. Instead of opening in standard Chrome, as I selected, the link will open in one of the SSB Chromes.

              • Lion 10.7: Cannot select Choosy as default browser

                On Mac OS X Lion 10.7, I cannot select Choosy as the default browser. I can navigate to the preference pane, but it is greyed out and cannot be selected. This means that none of the links I click on get sent to Choosy!

                    • Add options in Advanced to open link in new window

                      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.

                      • add OS X Applications to what Choosy can let you "Choose"

                        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…

                          • Fix modifier key feature - text area to record keypress does not appear

                            Please fix this bug. The little "text area" to record modifier keys does not appear when selecting the modifier key option.

                            It's unusable. Not sure if others have seen this issue crop up as well but I've had it since the Mojave beta and it's persisted past other Mojave fixes.

                            See the screenshot here: https://imgur.com/ofLUlfG

                                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!

                              • Anyone else experiencing Choosy stop working after sleep?

                                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?)

                                  • Easier support for advanced rules by domain

                                    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…

                                    • osx 10.12.2 : The application “Choosy.app” can’t be opened.

                                      works on 2014 mac pro, not on 2011 17", did the install the same way. Any ideas I really like this. I have 2 more macs, will try on them also and update.

                                      • Real Retina support for Choosy 1.1?

                                        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.
