MultiBrowser

1.1.1
16 September 2010

Control mulitple Internet browsers at once.

Overview

MultiBrowser allows you to take control of the many browsers that you may have installed on your Mac. Whenever you click on a link in just about any application (e.g. Mail, Preview, etc), MultiBrowser will appear and allow you to choose which browser to open that link in. MultiBrowser's browser selection window is highly configurable allowing you to change its colors, size, and more so that you can decide exactly what it should look like. MultiBrowser uses built-in Mac OS X services so that it does not even have to be running until you actually click a link - this means that it will not waste any of your Mac's resources. MultiBrowser also has additional options for changing how browsers are launched, handling multiple monitors, and more. It has optional usage tracking (which will not be shared with anyone except yourself) to let know how many times you use each browser.

Features:
  • Take control of the many browsers that you may have installed on your Mac
  • Can launch links from just about any application
  • Uses no resources when idle
  • Works with just about any browser
  • Highly configurable appearance lets you choose colors, size, and more
  • Options for changing how browsers are launched
  • Multi-Monitor support
  • Optional usage tracking
  • Automatically checks for the newest version
  • It's Free!

What's new in MultiBrowser

Version 1.1.1:
  • Renamed all references of (the incorrectly named) "combo-box" to (the now correctly named) "popup menu"
  • Simplified and improved "Preview Appearance" code
  • When the browser selection window appears, it will be positioned so that the mouse will now be over the initially selected browser (unless you have the location always set to centered)
  • Updated pie chart code to work properly with updated Google Chart API
  • Fixed a rare problem that could cause the MultiBrowser app to fail to launch on some 10.5 systems
  • Updated Help Book

Hi,
I am using it too but I have a question, maybe it is a bug, but when I select in the popup menu the browser I wish to use, I am not transferred directly to the browser. I didn't find any prefs on that saying open the browser and go to it!!!
Please if you have some idea!!
Thanks.

This MacUpdate installer seems to be missing the preference pane file that came with the developers original package and the app won't work without it. Seeing how the app still works in El Capitan, how can this be rectified?

Hello @sweetcharlie. I am trying to download that zip file you shared, but I can't get it to work. Did you have success? I got a new computer and I can't get that file to download to load the preferences page.
Thank you,
Scott

@scottpietka you should be able to download the file by creating a free account with 4shared.

I've also uploaded the file to here: http://www.filedropper.com/multibrowserprefpane use the "download this file" button and not any other download buttons on the page should there be multiple.

Works great. I just had to ctrl-click-open both the app and the prefpane the first time to get by the OS X security restrictions, then it worked smoothly.

Hi, I hope someone can help me out here. I have sent a couple of emails to the developer with no response, so I think the project might be dead. But I love MultiBrowser but since my upgrade to Mountain Lion it will not work. It keeps telling me MultiBrowser should not be run directly. If MultiBrowser is enabled (from the Preference Pane) it will automatically run when you click a link. I am not trying to run it directly, I am clicking on a link and while the Multibrower window comes up so does the message. I have tried removing and reinstalling the application a couple of times and that has not fixed the issue Thanks for any suggestions. Mike

As a QA engineer, I'm always working in multiple browsers at once. I've been using MultiBrowser for a couple years now, and I don't know what I'd do without it. I've donated twice because it's been of such good value to me. I haven't upgraded to Lion yet — here's hoping it's Lion compatible!

After using this for a while it works great. A bonus feature is if I accidentally click a link I can click cancel and not open the link.
