MultiBrowser 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!

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

Still working on my Apple Silicon Mac running Ventura! The link here no longer works, but the software can still be downloaded from the Wayback Machine here: https://web.archive.org/web/20140623231325/http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/33861/multibrowser MacOS now makes it quite challenging to install MultiBrowser, but it is still possible. You have to double-tap and select open to tell MacOS to open the unrecognized app. You have to do this first for the app, and then for the PrefPane (you have to first install the PrefPane, then find it's installed location and double-tap / open / approve from there. MacOS will put up resistance, but it is doable. And worth it! MultiBrowser is a fantastic free tool.

It is better to use the Orbit browser from Gologin on Mac. it is more convenient, it works on Chrome.
