Choose Wisely: Select Default Browser on a Per-Link Basis [Mac OS]

Are you a Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard user, and have installed almost all the browsers available for it? Do you want the option to select your “default” browser on a link-by-link basis, i.e, opening some links in Safari, some in Mozilla Firefox, some in Google Chrome, and so on? Look no further and get yourself Choose Wisely, which allows you to do all this.

After installing Choose Wisely, make it your default web browser. Now, when you click links in any other programs (such as, your email client), Choose Wisely will open a pop-up window, providing you the option to select a specific browser in which you want to open the link in. This tiny application is very useful and a boon for those users who are into web development and wants to test their work or for them who don’t want a single browser as their default browser.

Choose Wisely

To make Choose Wisely aware of which browsers you want to have in the option, all you need to do is, simply drag and drop your browsers into the application window. A maximum of 5 different browsers can be stored, and browsers you no longer need can be removed by dragging them out of the window. Minimum requirement to run Choose Wisely is Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, older versions are not yet officially supported and may cause system crashes.
