    • 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.

      • 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?

        • 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?

            • 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…

              • 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.

                  • 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&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…

                    • 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.

                      • 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?

                            Storing rules in iCloud might also be a good solution for this.

                            In the short term, there is a file you can back up manually for your advanced rules: ~/Library/Application Support/Choosy/behaviours.plist

                            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.

                            • 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.

                                  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)

                                  • Choosy Helper stops listening frequently

                                    Using the Choosy browser plugin in Safari to switch to Chrome (typically when a site needs Adobe Flash), often the browser will report that it doesn't understand URLs of the type x-choosy… (etc). The helper is allegedly running according to the Preference Pane. Stopping and starting the helper restores normal operation.

                                    • After upgrading to Mavericks it Choosey stopped working.

                                      After upgrading to Mavericks, Choosey stopped working. I have been checking back for an update but then checked system preferences and found I just needed to launch the helper again. Not a problem once you know that's all that has happened but something you might want to know.

                                        • Is Mailplane supportet

                                          Although I have added special rules for some sites, Mailplane still lets me choose the browser.
