Highbrow overview

Highbrow enables anyone to utilize each installed web browser more effectively on the Mac by eliminating the annoyances that arise from using multiple web browsers. With Highbrow, the user can select any of three separate behaviors.
  • Users can easily switch the system-wide web browser via the Highbrow menu in the Mac's menubar.
  • Highbrow can change the browser on the fly as the user shifts between web browsers.
  • Highbrow can ask users which browser to use each time they click a link via an unintrusive heads-up display.

Used it in Yosemite for a while, but as I dont really need it I didn't buy it. Still a good app.

Excellent app, but it doesn't work in Yosemite. I mourn its loss!

I've used this for several months now, and as a Web developer, I consider it a "must have." It was one of the first things I installed upon setting up my new laptop.

An extremely useful utility:) but need some work: 1. Global Hot-Keys (customizable)! 2. A Hot-Key to activate the HUD Panel when i wish... 3. ‘Manage browser List' should me much easier. Thanks.

It does what it does fantastically, but I wish I could let it know to open certain URLs in certain browsers. I have a bunch of Fluid browsers - one for Twitter and one for Facebook for example - and I'd love all my twitter.com URLs to automatically go to the Twitter fluid instance, and so on. The functions it has now are great, but the one I described would be compelling and I'd certainly buy it then!
