    • 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?

      • 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).

              • Choosy to Chrome stopped working

                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).

                • 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…

                  • Option to prioritize currently running browsers

                    Say you have 5 browsers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and you have 4 and 5 open. I'd like it to reorder to 4, 5, 1, 2, 3 so the open browsers are first, then the not running browsers.

                    • 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.

                      • 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?

                                      • Different options for left & right mouse clicks

                                        I'd like to have it so that a left click uses the default system browser, and a right click brings up Choosy, or at least Choosy's browser list in the contextual menu. There seems to be no option for this in settings or advanced rules.

                                        • Always open URL on browser XYZ (even if link entered in the address bar of another browser)

                                          I'm not sure if this is possible or not, but just like we have the existing regular expression system plus the Firefox plugin, have the browser plugin send a given URL to Safari (for example) if the loading page matches an expression.

                                          Reason?? I love Firefox but I can't use it with Flash/video sites (like YouTube and Vimeo)... Forget it, it's SLOOW and borderline useless.

                                          I'd love this feature! :) <3
