Find Or Load URL?
« on: January 26, 2016, 12:58:17 PM »
Hello,

I have a number of urls that I visit pretty regularly.  I create links to them and put all the links in a folder in my FARR path.

So far, so good.

But sometimes I go to open one of the url's from FARR and then discover I already had it open in an existing browser tab.  Or, I think I have it open in the first place and end up alt-tabbing and ctrl-tabbing to the browser(s) and through the tabs but come up empty (and then launch it from FARR). 

Is there a way in FARR to bring a browser tab up to the foreground if it's already open, OR open the url if it isn't?

Thanks for any suggests-

im afraid not -- that's up to the web browser.
so unless you can find a webbrowser with that option (or commanline option in a particular browser), you're out of luck.

No sweat Mouser!  Thanks for the reply.

FYI: FARR is hands down the greatest app I have ever had on any computer I have ever used.
