  1. 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).

  2. Bug: Click on link, get Choosy, Chrome opens new window (wrong) but not page (blank/home instead).

    MacOS 10.13.1. Chrome 61.0.3163.100 64bit. Seems to have started in the last few weeks. Choos Safari or Firefox and those open correctly.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. enable the browser plugins to send all tabs (not just one) to a different browser

    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.

  6. hipchat adobe air app doesn't honor choosy links

    I use HipChat's desktop air app for OS X and unfortunately choosy just opens them right up in Chrome :( I saw in a previous release note that you fixed it working for air apps, maybe this one is different?

  7. Choosy does not match ReadNow.app in rule definition

    I have a rule which says "if source application is /Applications/ReadNow.app, use best running browser". However, even if I promote this rule to rule 1, when I open a link from ReadNow, I am asked to select from all running browsers instead of it Just Working and opening the link in Safari.

    Choosy works correctly with similar rules referencing other applications. What's going wrong here?

  9. As an option: open Chrome in new *window*, not a new tab in existing window

    When clicking a link in e.g. Mail, it's horrible to be teleported to a workspace where I have other Chrome windows because Chrome insists on opening new windows in a new tab in a new window. This script used to work (and I was able to make Choosy use it), but now it ends up creating a second instance of Chrome (wow, had no idea that was possible with any Mac app!!). This new instance doesn't have my bookmarks and is not logged into the sites where the "original" chrome instance is logged in. That wasn't a problem before, It…

  10. Choosy 1.3 can't recognize custom Google Chrome profile directory

    Choosy only recognizes Google Chrome's profile with "Default" or "Profile x" directories.
    But a profile directory can be anything if you create it with `profile-directory` parameter.
    For example:
    ```sh
    $ open -a "Google Chrome.app" --args --profile-directory="foobar"
    ```
    And I prefer this way because "Profile x" is not semantic.
    Please support this case.

  12. Allow Choosy to target Chrome Apps as browsers

    I have a Chrome app for web mail. It would be awesome if I could get Choosy to open links in that Chrome app. But I don't know if Choosy can see them as valid app/browser targets.

  14. Choosy should allow the rewriting of URLs.

    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&amp;baz&quot; rather than "http://foo.com/?bar&baz&quot;

    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…

  16. update Safari extension to recognize Choosy rules.

    I have a rule set up to open urls to audio file types in QuickTime Player. It'd be great if the Choosy Safari extension could read my rules and intercept these URLs and do the right thing.

  17. Improve performance

    I really like Choosy. Just bought it. But I'd like to see it improve in performance. My super powerful MacBook Pro takes about half a second to open a link and display the browser. Without Choosy it happens in immediately. Any ways to achieve that? Kind regards Eric

  18. Support for native os x notifications

    I am using choosy with fluid and I would like it so when I click on os x's built in facebook notifications, my fluid facebook app opens. I was unable to find a way to achieve this via advanced rules, and even if it is possible, it would be nice if the "source application" rule were just "source" and one was allowed to select things that aren't considered applications (such as os x notifications).
    In the meantime though, is there a way to achieve this with the current state of choosy?

  19. Choosy always displays the prompt even when my #1 browser is running

    Choosy always displays the prompt even when my #1 browser is running. It didn't used to do this but it has been consistently acting this way for a while.

  20. allow reordering of browsers in priority list by drag & drop

    I'm sure this used to work, but it's broken in 0.93: dragging a browser entry just results in it flying back into place. Expected behaviour: the list is reordered.
