Open in Browser Workflow for Alfred
This Alfred workflow opens the current active tab of a browser in a different browser.
I extended the existing workflows to better suit my needs:
I browse the web in Safari, but mainly work in Chromium, so I switch between the two browsers heavily. In addition, I don't have Flash installed on my Mac, so whenever I come across some content that uses Flash I fire up Google Chrome to view it (or I ignore it completely).
To install the workflow, download
openInBrowser.alfredworkflow and double-click.
How to Use It
Trigger the workflow with
openinchromium, depending on which browser you want to open. The script detects the current active browser and retrieves the active tab's URL from it.
The workflow will not do anything when neither Safari, Chromium or Chrome are the frontmost/active window to avoid confusion on which tab to clone.
Currently Supported Browsers
Turning on/off Notifications
You can turn off all notifications by removing or disconnecting the Post Notification object in the Alfred workflow window. If you only want to receive specific notifications, enable/disable them by commenting them out in the AppleScript.
