Hello Miles,

Just a few words to let you know that our exchanges here led me to completely rethink my Desktop organization and tools.

DonnationCoder allowed me to download at discount price Directory Opus with which I can use Direct Folders and TeraCopy.

I also use XStart, Selector 1.9 and Browser Chooser (if you set it as your "default browser", it manages all the shortcuts of your links and lets you chose with which browser you want to open one of them) as well as ReOpen and FARR. I'm toying with AutoHotKey to make the best possible use of my mouse's buttons and Winlaunch to create some handy shortcuts. I haven't given yet a close look to Launchy which I downloaded too. But I will in the coming days.

For my captures on the web I use both Surfulater, FireShot extension for FireFox and Printee with IE and in order to better synchronize my bookmarks between my browsers I am now testing both Xmarks and Tidy Favorites.

For my RSS Feeds, I use RSSOwl, and PersonalBrain as a general information, documents, emails and links "organizer".

Now you know nearly everything about my nightly entertainments ! smiley

When I will have found the right balance with these apps, I'll gladly share with you the result of the changes I made.

I'll give a closer look at Launchy, then. I've downloaded it with some nice skins and will install in a minute. Thanks for making me discover this one, Miles.  Kiss

« Getting better all the time ! » as the good old Beattles' song use to say ! smiley

I downloaded and installed it. Thanks, Miles.


Right after, I stumbled across these two links :

- http://lifehacker.com/535...wser-to-open-new-links-in

- http://browserchooser.codeplex.com/

An interseting feature in "Browser chosser" is the one that allows it to be defined as a "pseudo" default browser. Each time you click on a link (whatever this link is), on a "favorite", the little wondow with the browsers pops-up allowing you to choose which one you wanna use. So the favorite and link a re no longer related to one browser only; this is quiet "handy".

Yet, it lacks the precision of Selector as long as it does not allow to move to a specific link selected in another browser : it only opens a new browser displaying its own starting page.

So, according to my purpose, I either use Selector or the Browser chooser, now.

What do you think about it ?

Hi MilesAhead,

I've been quite busy lately, but I wanted to thank you for these updates which I downloaded and enjoyed.

Keep up the good job !  Thmbsup

Hi MilesAhead,

I just downloaded the updated version of Selector. Thanks for this handy new feature.  Thmbsup

I also downloaded AutoHotKey as you suggested (what a piece of software !) and atm I'm learning how to use it properly – I copied your script : it will be my first ".ahk" file !  Wink

More info tomorrow : I will have some free time then to play around with my new Xmas's toys !  tongue

Have a nice day.

Thanks for these suggestions, MilesAhead, I will give them a try and let you know about it.  Thmbsup

It's dinner time here and I must make a pause, but I'll be very glad to chat again with you about all this.

Have a nice day.

Never mind, MilesAhead !  Cool

I understand very well this confusion because I was hesitating myself between several possibilities. As a first step, I thought, well if I could keep my hand on my mouse this would be great : a click for to launch the Selector's window and one more click in this window to lauch another browser : great !  smiley

[ Nevertheless, we do feel the same about "mouse gestures" !  embarassed  ]

A further step would be to launch both Selector and its selection window, may be. Saying this, I think of the tight management of my RAM. I've got 4Go but when you run aside such apps as Photoshop and/or Illustrator, not to speak about PersonalBrain and MindManager, you quickly become quite cautious about  it !  Cry  Wink

PS : I have sent you 9 bucks (I wanted to give 10 but I forgot about the greedy Paypal's x-rates, please excuse me), so that we could virtually share a drink together. Cheers ! cheesy

Well, I think of a bookmarklet that would be an equivalent of the hotkeys. This might sound silly but as a matter of fact when I'm browsing most of the time I use mouse's clicks to do this or that. All browsers encourage such a behavior by providing buttons for the extensions or plug-ins, etc.

I guess such a feature would quickly become very popular (many of the common bookmarklets are available for multiple browsers : for example, I use the same "Share This" bookmarklet with Chrome, Opera and Safari; Firefox has an ".xpi" extension for this app and IE has a toolbar).

Fabulous !  Thmbsup

Many thanks, MilesAhead, it works perfectly : now I have both "Chrome" (without command switches) and "Super Chrome" (with the command switches) !!!  Kiss

This tool is gonna save me time and so many useless clicks.

I'l send a link to your app to all my friends. Could bookmarklets be created for your app ?

Hello MilesAhead,

I just downloaded your software and used it as the selective browser launcher that I was looking for. I enjoy it a lot !  smiley

My favorite browser atm is Chrome Dev version (4.0.203.2) which I use with some extensions and bookmarklets. In order to launch it properly, I added "--enable-extensions --enable-sync" to its shortcut. Would it be possible to implement a feature that could add these commands in Selector 1.2 as well ? Or to create a bookmarklet fo your program that would include them ?

PS : Each of the 5 browsers that I surf with (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Opera, Safari) has a specific set of extensions (for example, let's say that Firefox is specialized in video browsing and downloading while Chrome has all the necessary features for grabing texts, bookmarking pages and saving the articles I'm interested in, etc.). Thus, I may keep each of these browsers with a limited number of extensions and plug-ins which doesn't slow them down badly.

Thanks in advance for your kind answer and suggestions.
