  3. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. Would like to be able to create a rule based off my current active Desktop on mac. I utilize multiple Desktops for a personal screen and a work screen with different browser requirements.

  8. 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.

  10. I often get URLs in Adium and other places that were pasted from Firefox which leaves them incorrect by html-encoding the URL. This results in "http://foo.com/?bar&baz" rather than "http://foo.com/?bar&baz"

    A simple regexp substitution could fix this; allowing a generic external rewrite API would be even better.

    As a workaround, I'll see if I can write an app that accepts such URLs, and sends the corrected ones back to Choosy; then I can have Choosy send them to it rather than a 'real' browser…

  12. 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.

  13. I can't believe this is the intended behavior, but when I click on a link, Choosy sends the link to the web browser but does not bring it frontmost. I can't imagine what setting this might be. Is there something that I'm doing wrong?

  14. The Safari extension lets me open a menu of browsers and click one to open that tab in that browser.

    I'd like to be able to option-click to also close that tab in the current browser. (An option to make this the default would also be nice.)

  15. I would really appreciate the option for in-browser links to be routed through Choosy. I use many Site-Specific Browsers and I mainly bought Choosy to have it automatically direct to the appropriate SSB while using my main browser.

    For example. I'd like to direct all YouTube URLs to an SSB of a specific account. If I I'm not paying attention, which is likely to happen eventually, I'll slip up and forget to open the url with Choosy.

    I read an older comment that it was by design, but I think it's worth reconsidering. Choosy could default to the way it…

  16. It would be very useful to be able to open any URL from anywhere in macOS within Choosy via a macOS Share extension.

    This feature would have the added bonus of making the Choosy Safari extension optional.

  19. Add an option to the ruleset to allow decisions based on the power status of the computer: For example pick one browser if you're plugged in, and another if you're on battery.
