  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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  7. Update Choosy to bring web browsers to the forefront.

    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?

  8. add support for recognizing different Slack teams, similarly to how you recognize different Chrome profiles

    This would allow me to make rules that say things like "when I click a link in Slack team A, use Chrome profile B to open it." Right now I have it set to always prompt for every link in Slack, but I almost always choose the specific Chrome profiles for specific Slack teams (work, personal, etc).

  12. fix that Choosy doesn't work for links in other applications

    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…

  13. fix the bug where Choosy just disables itself on it's own. Every day it does this. Not boot related.

    If this is OS related then it's a bug. Very annoying that I can use Choosy, come back a couple of hours later when nothing seems to have changed and it has disabled itself.
    No filevault.

  14. Choosy disabled itself before it was due to expire.

    I am running Choosy 0.9.2. In System Preferences, it says in red, "Choosy is not registered, you may use it for another 273 days." However, it has now disabled itself. I noticed earlier that in the menubar there were two Choosy menus, 0.9.2 (old icon) and 0.9.3 (triangle icon). Now there is only the 0.9.2 menu. Choosy 0.9.2 has asked in the past to upgrade to 0.9.3, and it told me then that if I did so, my trial period would be set to 90 days. That was less than 90 days ago, and I do not remember even downloading…

    It sounds like some confusion has occured between the two versions – one has expired and the other hasn’t. The automated update shouldn’t install a new version without asking, and when it does it should replace the old version so there are a number of issues here.

    Could you email me and I can get some more details from you?

  19. Links clicked in one Fluid SSB matching a rule to open in another SSB, do not open at all.

    Fluid v1.4

    The current SSB stays focused, however the Window loses focus (the Application is still the foremost application, however).
