Guilherme Rambo has launched BrowserHub 1.0, a web browser based utility developed for Mac OS X.
The app sits between links and the web browsers installed on the system, so users can create rules that determine what browser should be used depending on the context. You can create simple rules based on the URL and select a browser to open links matching those rules. Rules can be created based on protocol, host, path, file extension or app.
So, for instance, the next time you click on a link in Mail, and the link matches that particular rule, it will open on the browser defined for that kind of link. Examples of rules that could be created with BrowserHub include: “open all YouTube links in Chrome,” “open video links in VLC,” or “open my bank’s website on Internet Explorer in Parallels.” The rules are created on an interface similar to Mail’s rules preferences.
BrowserHub 1.0 is being offered at a special launch sale of $9.99 and is available worldwide through the Mac App Store () in the Utilities category. A demo is available at the product website (https://getbrowserhub.com/trial).
