Choosy out of beta

Choosy v1.0 has finally come out! You may recall I’ve mentioned my need for a hyperlink manager tool before.1

I’ve been using Choosy for over 6 months at this point and it has become an indispensable part of my workflow. Especially since George has added functionality for advanced rules.

My setup is as follows: I use Safari as my primary browser, however, my company has a number of internal web apps that have been built with Firefox in mind. This means at work I leave Firefox open all the time. So, using Choosy, I’ve set up some advanced rules for the web apps that make their URLs automatically route to Firefox.

I also have a few SSB instances in Fluid (Gmail, Fever, and others) and so I can direct links meant for these apps directly to them.

Everything else asks from the list of open browsers, defaulting to Safari when no browsers are open or if it’s the only open browser.

It’s fast, elegant, optimized for either mouse or keyboard users. The best part? It’s only $12.

Well done and congrats George!
