If you are one of those people who use multiple web browsers on your Mac, you are going to love BrowserFreedom.
BrowserFreedom sits in between your links and the web browsers installed on your Mac.
You can define rules to always open certain websites on a specific browser. Maybe you like to use Safari as your default browser but want YouTube to always open in Chrome. Or maybe you want to always open links clicked within an app on a specific browser, you can do that too.
With fast default browser switching, you can quickly switch your Mac’s default browser with a user-defined global shortcut. And if you see a link and want to choose the browser to open It, just option-click to pop up the browser selection menu.
So stop copying and pasting URLs and let BrowserFreedom help you.

this app is trash
dont waste your money on this app
A godsend, if you use multiple browsers
I use chrome as my work browser and Safari as my personal browser. In BrowserHub I can define rules (similar to rules in Apple Mail) to route certain clicks to a specific browser. For example, I can set a rule that any link to the Webex conferencing service should be automatically opened in Chrome, since I only use WebEx for work. Once the rule is in place it will always open a particular link in chrome, no matter whether I click in Mail, Outlook, BusyCal or even hipchat or Messages. No more copy / paste for links!

Thank you for your kind words :)
A long overdue app
This is an awesome little piece of software. It’s something long overdue for Mac users. Rule creation is easy, the interface is simple and easy to use and navigate. A points of feedback I’d like to offer is the ability to minimize the application to the dock and not have it open to the foreground when it handles a request — probably unlikely as it handles links like a browser, but would be cool if it could work in the background.
Overall, a fantastic utility and I’m looking forward to seeing it grow.
