Browser Bunch beta

<< < (11/11)

I made a change to BrowserBunch so that if the first param on the command line is not a switch and does not end in ".txt" then it treats it as a single url.

The reason for this is to make it easy to use it with a hotkey.  My usage of this feature is for launching a different browser to the url in the addressbar of the browser currently open.

Say I just installed a FF AddOn and I want to install the chrome version in chrome.  I added this hotkey to Transpose(my general purpose hotkey script)  It sends contol c to copy the selected url to clipboard, then Runs BrowserBunch with the url as param.  You can make your own variation.

--- ---; send selected Url to Browser Bunch
#IfWinActive ahk_Group BrowserGroup
  ClipSave := Clipboard
  Clipboard := ""
  Send, ^c
  Run C:\Utils\BrowserBunch\BrowserBunch.exe %Clipboard%
  Clipboard := ClipSave
  ;MsgBox % Clipboard

I'm posting the BrowserBunch.exe here for those who wish to try out the feature.

Edit:  The next change will be to bypass the filter InputBox for single url launch. In fact I may add an .ini file option to disable it.  That would save a click.  I find I rarely use it anyway.  :)

Thank you for trying it.   :Thmbsup:

Note that download has been pulled from my download page

If  you still see it there hit the refresh key. It should disappear.  :)
It seems there is no easy fix such as recompiling the source with the latest version of AutoIt3.
I tried it and it still shows 2 red flags on VirusTotal.  Since these av scanners keep coming out of the woodwork and generally have a cumbersome process to register a program as having false positives, it is not worth the hassle to go through that for 50, 60, 70 ad infinitum  scanners, it amounts to "if someone complains I have to pull it."  There are other downloads with red flags.  So I expect the number of downloads to dwindle soon.

For those who want to stockpile the zip files on my page, now is a good time to use DownLoadThemAll.  :)

In this particular case I found I wasn't using BB myself anymore anyway.  :)
