Choosy

15 July 2009

Welcome to the archive

This post is old… It's probably been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the year. That probably means that there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any adivce is out of date and irrelevant. Or more likely, it was the wafflings of bored-past me with too much time on his hands. If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.


A while back I posted a list of five free apps that I couldn't live without, if you haven't read it you can find the post here: clicky. Choosy is one of those apps that I can't live without, unfortunately it isn't free... however I'll get to that later!

I use lots of browsers on my computer, partly because I need to test some of my web designs in other browsers, partly because I have a browser commitment phobia! Basically what Choosy does is to give you an option as to which browser you want to use when you click a link from a program, this in itself is very useful, however it gets better!

The final release of Choosy also contains a way of setting up rules, so that you can tell the link facebook.com to always open in a certain browser, or any link from a certain program to open in another browser, stunningly useful, especially seeing as I can tell youtube.com never to open in Chrome!

As I said above Choosy isn't free, you can try it for 45 days for free, however after that it costs $12 which, at the time of writing, is about £7ish! But, if you use my nice discount code "UGBXP" you can get 15% off!

You can find out more, see videos and actually download Choosy from www.choosyox.com
