Launch tabs from a text file in Firefox, Chrome, Opera,.....

Launch tabs from a text file in Firefox, Chrome, Opera,.....

Like in this script for IE :

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. #NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
  2. #Warn  ; Recommended for catching common errors.pongo ; inicial por error al compilar sobre esta línea.
  3. SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
  4. SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
  5. URL = http://www.google.com/search?q=
  6. navOpenInNewWindow = 1
  7. navOpenInNewTab = 2048
  8. navOpenInBackgroundTab = 4096
  9. navOpenNewForegroundTab = 65536
  10.  
  11. FileSelectFile, filepath
  12. wb := ComObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application") ; create IE
  13. wb.Visible := true ; 'false' to not show IE
  14. loop, Read, %filepath%
  15. {
  16. if (A_index = 1)
  17.   wb.Navigate2(URL . A_LoopReadLine, navOpenNewForegroundTab) ; Navigate
  18. else
  19. wb.Navigate2(URL . A_LoopReadLine, navOpenInBackgroundTab) ; Navigate
  20. sleep 100
  21. }
  22. return

Is it possible ?

I know how to open a link from (an older version of) Opera in FF - is that any help to you?
Text copied from Opera is plain text, so I got help there (on the Surfulator forum actually)

@Contro: have you tried this app by MilesAhead - Browser Bunch?



"excerpt from readme.txt"
Readme for Browser Bunch v. 1.4.2.0

  Install: Unzip to an empty folder

  Remove: Delete folder made above

  Usage: BrowserBunch
    Displays About Box with usage info

  Usage: BrowserBunch /setup
    Use Setup Mode to assign multiple Browsers to Buttons

  Usage: BrowserBunch UrlFile [ Filter ]

  Browser Bunch reads UrlFile which should be plain
  text with a web address per line. If Filter is not
  specified, an InputBox will pop up. This makes it
  easy to use via SendTo Folder or Windows 7 Jump List.

  I recommend using a single word as a filter. For example
  if you saved a bunch of Internet Movie Data Base search
  Urls to a file, and only wanted to see the ones with
  "wind" in the title (such as "gone with the wind" or
  "windstruck") then use the word wind as Filter.

  At this point a Gui pops up with 6 buttons. The left
  most button is the "default" that will press if you
  hit Enter. That should be the one with the browser
  you use most. The buttons will be blank until you
  associate a browser exe with the button. Pressing
  a blank button brings up a File Open Dialog allowing
  you to select the browser exe for that button. Then
  the Urls will be opened with that browser. 6 Buttons
  allows you to use up to 6 browsers. Should be enough
  for most people. :) The paths for the browser exes
  will be saved to .ini file along with the button number.

  When the Gui Window opens, the label will show the length
  of the Command Tail (all the Urls are strung together with
  spaces between and added to the browser command line) in
  characters.  Also it will tell you how many Tabs will be
  Opened if you push a button. Press Esc key or use the
  'x' close button of the window to abort launching the
  browser. According to MS documentation, XP and later
  should support a total command line size of 8191 characters.
  Unless you are using very long search strings the issue of
  concern would be the number of tabs openned, rather than
  the command line length. Especially chrome or other browsers
  that open a process for each tab, memory used and/or the browser
  bogging down may be an issue. For these reasons the stats
  are presented, giving you the chance to abort launch.


  Needless to say the browser in question must be set to open
  new links in Tabs. It also must support listing multiple
  Urls on the command line. I've tried Chromium 20.x,
  Opera 11.51, Firefox 9.01 and MaxThon Portable 3.0.
  They all worked fine.

Oh. I have Opera Installed. running to try.
But I have to say i have adopted browseTraySwitch.
Yesterday i obtain Yandex browser. It's very similar to Chrome I think.
And with browseTraySwitch is easy to change between browsers

I have from time ago an addon for firefox to see a web using IE without abandon the browser.
Open link target in IE
really are pro-browsers to keep inside a determined browser, not to change the browser like browseTrySwitch does.

I don't remember what addon is, and I have tried to locate but don't see in the addons, but the addon is because i have the option.....

this program results very special. And wonderful.
You can download from http://milesaheadsoftware.tk/
At the present moment the download link from the above don't go.
Is specially useful when you have to filter group of url's . I was using the tab groups in FF , but this tool is more flexible. And I can use more browsers now.
I am going to try just now if I can have more than six browsers.

glad to see it working well for you! i gather from the readme.txt, the app is hard-coded with a max of 6 browsers. to increase the limit, you may have to post a feature request to MilesAhead. ;)

Understood. A great application anyway. I have adopted in the task bar
