It looks like this should be possible, by replacing the current Safari extension with a new Safari App Extension. I've added it to my backlog for a future Choosy release.
There is some limited keyboard support already: the arrow keys can be used to move the browser selection, and the return key opens the selected browser.
I'll consider adding more in the future.
It should be possible. It's likely there's some setup I'm doing only the first time the prompt is displayed that I should be doing every time it's displayed. It's on my list of things to investigate further.
I think I may know what's causing this: if you're using a Mac with a retina display, but you're attaching a non-retina display, Choosy will probably end us using the resolution of whichever display it was opened on first even when you open it again on the other display.
If you’re using the browser prompt, then you can either press the ESC key, or just click outside of the prompt.
Does that solve the problem?

I’m still looking into this, but it seems to have more to do with the OS than Choosy.
This issues can sometimes be related to using File Vault. If you are using File Vault you could try disabling it. See this post on SuperUser for more information:
If you’re not using File Vault there are some suggestions about resetting your Launch Services settings in this Apple Forum thread: http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=8965818
If none of that helps, please leave a comment letting me know.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Sorry, I must have misunderstood your original post; I assumed you were restarting Choosy to work around some bug, rather than enabling/disabling it regularly.
I'll bear the feature in mind, thanks for the feedback.
Why do you find yourself needing to restart the Choosy helper app? I'd much rather fix the underlying problem than make it easy for you to work around it.
Could you give me some more details? When you navigate to the Choosy preference pane, is the checkbox to set Choosy as the default browser greyed out, or the whole preference pane?
Great idea. It’s on the list for a future version.
@kbrock: I plan to support this natively in a future version, but AppleScript support (or indeed any other scripting language you may choose) is also planned.
I've not been able to reproduce this issue. Are you still having the same problem? If so, can you tell me if anything appears in the system Console (/Applications/Utilities/Console.app) when you try to add or update an advanced behaviour?
This is an idea I've been considering for a while. Given the differences between browsers' extension systems it will be tricky to do consistently across all of the browsers. I'll definitely look into it further in the future though.
This looks like it might be related to driver issues with the Nvidia Geforce 7300 graphics card.
Could those who are following this thread leave comments indicating which graphics card their Mac uses?
Thanks for your patience while I fix this.
Can you give me a little more information, specifically what spec is the Mac you are using, and which version of Mac OS X. Thanks.
Could you provide more details? Specifically, where is the link you are clicking on and what are your Choosy settings. Thanks.
