Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Bumpr is a handy, beautiful Mac app that lets you choose where to open links. Anytime you click on a web link, a compact, elegant menu pops up right in place and lets you choose which browser to open that link with. Bumpr also works with mail links.
Bumpr is particularly effective if you use more than one browser to run separate Google accounts, for cross-browser testing, to keep certain kinds of browsing activities restricted to certain browsers, and more. Its email handling is great if you use separate email clients for different email accounts.
It’s incredibly simple but incredibly powerful. Give it a try today!

Bumpr is phenomenal. How did we get by all these years? Like animals, that’s how.
Bumpe is a polished, simple, robust app.
Bumpr creates connections to unknown servers
Why the connections to Crashlytics and Amazon AWS servers? Your FAQ claims:
"What information does Bumpr record about me? Bumpr keeps a record of how often it opens each application, in order to show commonly-used applications first. That information is only kept on the user’s computer, and is not sent to Bumpr’s developers or any other party.”
Why the external connections then?
