About Choosy

Forget the default browser, Choosy opens links in the right browser. When you click on a link Choosy will do the right thing, whether that's something simple (like using whatever browser is already running) or something complex (like prompting you to pick a browser, but only when you hold down the shift key and click on a link to google.com).

  1. Introduction

    Say you get emailed a link to a great website, you want to open the link but you may not always want to use the same browser. That's where Choosy comes in: It can prompt you to select a browser or choose a browser for you, all based on your settings. It's highly customisable and easy to use. You can tell which browser you want to use and which ones to ignore, you can customise what it does in different situations, you can customise the appearance and you can even set up advanced behaviour rules to do very specific things in very specific circumstances.

  2. The browser prompt

    The Choosy browser prompt is designed to make it easy to select a browser quickly and efficiently. Browsers are positioned so that less mouse movement is required to select higher priority browsers, with your favourite browser always appearing right under the mouse cursor.

  3. Choosy in your browser

    You can use Choosy to send pages from one link to another using a set of bookmarklets. There are also various plugins available that provide even better integration with browsers. See the Choosy in your browser page for more information.

  4. Choosy & Fluid

    Fluid is a popular Mac application to create SSBs. Choosy works brilliantly with Fluid. You can set up advanced behaviour rules in Choosy to send relevant links to your Fluid SSBs, or you can use ChoosyFluid to create the rules for you.
