open gmail inbox/compose in Chrome (non default browser)
« on: August 27, 2009, 12:35 PM »
I'm looking for a way to open Chrome from FARR if it's not already open (or bring it to the foreground if it is already open), and have it point to my gmail inbox (or gmail compose).  My default browser is not Chrome (it's FireFox).

Any help/suggestions greatly welcome.

You can use "create application shortcut" feature of chrome to create an application shortcut to gmail and use that from farr to launch gmail inbox (this is basically a shortcut to chrome with an argument of so you can just use that in an alias or sth).

As for the feature of displaying already active gmail, or start a new window if not running you can use ahk scripts.

I am working on an idea of a farr plugin that will do just that for any app. But it will not be ready any time soon.
It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
