Clever utility, great way to protect my privacy

Just got it set up, so far this is a great way to automatically open links for creepy companies like Facebook, Google, and Twitter in an alternate browser. I’ve tested it with links from a few apps, like Tweetbot and Mail, and it works like a charm.

Since it’s rule-based, though, about my only compaint is I wish there were rule templates for some of its use cases, like being a web developer or protecting one’s privacy. Something like a rule template of “open all Google links in X browser” and all the relevant URLs are already filled in (since many of these companies have lots of sub-properties and all sorts of regular and shortened URLs).

Still, this is just what I’ve been looking for. Works great.

Great little helper if you use more than one browser

I love this little app. It works unobtrusively in the background and steers URLs to the browser of your choice. It can do that based on rules you define, via a popup selector, and also offers a default browser.
It is one of those helpful apps that you get so used to that you only realize you are missing it once you work on another computer.
I use different browsers for my personal and academic life. My productivity has increased, no more copy and paste orgies like before.

I love this app!

I had no idea that something like this even existed until I saw it in the app store today. With so many newspapers requiring a password after a certain amount of views opening up another browser is the only way to circumvent the problelm.
Browser Fairy makes opening up another browser a breeze. It’s fantastic.
