Open in Chrome

Safari extension that opens the current page in Chrome. See this post by John Gruber for the "why" on this one.

Note: the extension depends on an AppleScript application to communicate with Chrome, so it will not work on Windows.


  1. Download and extract the ZIP file
  2. Install the extension (double-click OpenInChrome.safariextz)
  3. Put the ChromeHelper app anywhere you want and double-click it to register with Mac OS X (nothing will happen yet)
  4. Click the Open in Chrome arrow button in Safari to open the current page in Chrome
