  2. Different browser based on energy consumption

    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.

  6. option to lock to a specific browser from the menu bar

    Ability to lock the browser choice to a particular browser selected in the menu item's menu, until disabled again. Choosy won't be shown when opening URLs, but the browser selected when locking is automatically chosen.

  8. 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. :)

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

    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

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

  16. 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.

    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!

  20. 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?)
