Hyperlink Manager Followup: 2 Options

In a recent post, Hyperlink Manager, I discussed a hypothetical software tool I’d like to see. The goal is to have a better way to select the browser a link should be opened in.

Since that time, two solutions for Mac have popped up: Choosy and Highbrow.

I’ve been using Choosy for about a month now. While it doesn’t do everything I described, it does a very elegant job of what I need.

Here is how I have it set up. On clicking a link:

The only enhancement I’d really like to see is automated rules based on the URL.

Choosy is currently in beta and will be released as shareware eventually.

Highbrow came out right about the same time as choosy as a full-fledged 1.0 release. It costs $12. I haven’t used it, but it appears to be quite similar in function.

Know of any others or solutions for other platforms (Windows or Linux)? Let me know!
