  1. If only one browser is running, use that browser

    If I have any single browser running, I want to open links in that browser

    If I have two or more browsers running, I want the Choosy prompt

  2. Add Mailplane Support

    I have found that Mailplane does not respect choosy rules... it does not give me a browser prompt, and does not use the correct browser when I try to add an advanced rule for the app.

    Choosy works by setting itself as the default browser. This problem often arises when another browser sets itself as the default (e.g. many browsers nag you to set them as the default when they are launched, and if you do so Choosy will be disabled)

    Could this be the cause of your problem?

  4. The helper does not launch on login on Yosemite

    I have to launch the helper manually after each restart on Yosemite. This wasn't the case on Mavericks.

  5. open in choosy

    When I right-click a link in Safari and click "Open with Choosy", it brings up a list of browsers. I would like Choosy to use my rules to determine which browser to use. Is this possible?

  7. Support for Handoff

    Let's say I want to handoff a webpage from Safari on iOS to Chrome on Mac. How would I set up a rule to support this?

  8. Fix bug: Choosy 1.3 does not appear in 10.14 System Preferences

    Choosy is working as the default browser, but it does not appear in System Preferences, so I can't change any of its options. Help, please!

  10. Paid for choosy; sometimes, it just stops working during a work session

    Just recently had Choosy *stop* working during a session, after it has worked fine for a period. For instance, I am in Mail now and a link click simply launches the default browser -- the box of browser icons doesn't appear. Five minutes before, it had been working fine. This has happened 3 times in the past several days, during which Apple I believe has released some software updates I installed, so perhaps that's the problem.

  12. route by availability of domain in keyring

    I use different browsers by security domain: unauthenitcated, authenticated, sensitive. I have a separate keyring for sensitive domains. It is quite cumbersome to add many "webaddress contains" rules in the advanced tab. Improvments would be:
    (a) pop up a window that will allow browser selection for the first time a domain is opened, and
    (b) look up if a domain is listed in an unlocked keyring and select a default browser based on it.

  15. Preference to use choosy for all links in the browser

    I'd really like a preference to have choosy run against all links clicked in the browser.

    I always open certain sites in certain browsers (gmail and youtube in chrome, etc.) Choosy is great for this, but sometimes there are links to those sites in a page and if I don't notice and choose 'open with choosy', they open in the current browser, bypassing my choosy preferences. I'd like to be able to set my preferences for all links, not just when I remember to click 'open in choosy'

  17. Allow me to open links from Notification Center in a specific browser.

    When I click links in Notification Center I always want them to open in Safari instead of Chrome, but it's not an 'app' I can select from the rules tool.

  18. Choosy doesn't seem to work with Fluid sites.

    I use Fluid to make browsers for certain webpages, including Google.com. If no browsers are open and I need to quickly search for something, I can open it instead of a regular browser without having to wait for all its tabs to load.

    But when search results are returned, none of the links can be opened in the Fluid window. The Choosy window pops up, I choose the Fluid browser - the page flashes and nothing happens.

    Earlier Safari was closed when I tried this several times and something very erratic occurred: I chose Fluid, but It appeared as though…

  20. Choosy isn't working in Microsoft Word any more.

    Not sure what happened--it works in other Office products. Ideas?
