  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Tell me how to copy my rules to a new Choosy install, or where Choosy stores rules so I can manually copy them over to my new macbook.

  6. 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…

  10. When clicking a shortened URL it would be great if the advanced rules could be applied to the expanded target.

  11. For example, if I open a page in one browser that should be opened in another browser, have it automatically send it to the other browser. For instance, if I type it in or if I copy a url into the url bar and press enter

  12. 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?)

  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 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.

  15. I run Chrome with four different profiles. I love that Choosy makes it possible to use each of the profiles as a separate browser option. On feature that would make life just a little bit smoother is the ability to customize the icon for each browser. It would make it quicker and easier to identify and select the browser I want to send the page to.

    Also, thank you for making Choosy! It has proven to be a great tool for me!

  16. Choosy is awesome but if you have a new rule, it's kind of a pain to add. I would love to see an easy way to add simple rule like: open this url in this browser from command line (which then can be wrap around an Alfred workflow)

  17. I'm using Chrome and Epichrome as two separate full-featured browsers and have added both to Choosy.

    Under "Browsers" they show with their respective app names, but both show the Chrome icon.

    In the Prompt, they both show up as "Chrome" with the Chrome icon.

    While it might be a bit different than usual as these browsers are heavily related, they show correctly in the MacOS Dock and switcher.

    Please detect these names correctly, or allow customising the prompt names and icons.

  18. The browser plugins are great for sending windows to a different browser, but for people like me who keep tons of tabs open at once, it'd be awesome if I could send them all to a different browser at once.
