      • 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'

          • 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.

            • 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…

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

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

                      • general help with rules running on mOS 10.14

                        I am having difficulty activating rules on Mojave; don't think the rule is entered incorrectly.

                        rule to specify that all google docs and drive urls are always opened with chrome even if browser is not running.

                        set all the following are true
                        -> web address matches regex (?i)(.*docs.|.*drive.)(google.com)
                        always use this browser … chrome

                        [later tried if any of the rules are true
                        -> web address contains 'docs.google.com'
                        -> web address contains 'drive.google.com'
                        prompt to select from these browsers … safari, chrome]

                        Neither rule worked. Was always prompted with running browsers (as per browser behavior settings) but the advanced rules…

                        • Add an option to open a blank browser window

                          I currently have Google as a .webloc file on my hard drive which I've mapped to a mouse button and keyboard button. Thing is, I don't want to load Google up on every load, I want a blank page to load. I can't make a .webloc for about:blank, so I'd really like this option. Perhaps a way to open the application without a target address to open a blank window in selected browser?

                            You can make an inetloc file for a Choosy API URL:
                            1) Type x-choosy://prompt.all/about:blank into the Safari address bar.
                            2) Drag the URL into a folder in Finder or onto your desktop.
                            3) You’ll have an inetloc file you can open to trigger a Choosy browser prompt for about:blank.

                          • FileMaker google auth

                            It would be great if you could make FileMaker google oauth play nice with a secondary browser, e.g. Vivaldi. I get as far as getting the rule to work: w.o.w. Vivaldi opens, automatically accepts, FileMaker continues the login... but Vivaldi stays open with the window open as well. And this is exactly the outcome that I want to avoid. After 10 auths there are windows all over the place. It would be nice if the operation works just like the browser is the default browser: if it is not open, it starts, opens the auth window, authenticates, closes the window,…

                                • 0.93 does not stay enabled

                                  Installed 0.93 over previous version. Each time I click on the pref pane, it tells me Choosy is not enabled. I tick all four boxes in the "enable Choosy" section, click "Start helper now" and press Cmd-Q.

                                  On going back to the pref pane, I am warned about Choosy not being enabled AGAIN. All four boxes are unticked and the helper is shown as not running. (BTW, the first click on Choosy changes the title bar to "Loading Choosy" but the pane does not appear — I have to click it again to get this far)

                                  This happens even if I…

                                    The current version of Safari 4.0 beta is not detected as "running" by Choosy resulting in some annoying behavior.
