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.

Works! Simply Works! (Unlike Choosy!)

I needed a easy, fast way to manage my work Google Drive account and my personal Google Drive account. Solution, stay logged into my personal GD account in Safari and stay logged into my work GD account in Chrome. But it still was a hassle copying and pasting url’s into the right browser. Solution-Browser Fairly. I simply entered the url’s for work into Browser Fairy and had them automatically opene in Chrome. Same idea for Safari. AWESOME. BTW, I first tried Choosy as a way to manage my browsers. Bad decision. Choosy was not installing correctly into my Preferences for some reason. Others online expressed the same problem. I contacted the developer and he never responded. Poor form. IMO, stay away from Choosy b/c of poor customer support and a buggy install issue.

Simple and effective

Browser Fairy just works. You set it to be your default browser and it silently and seamlessly routes URLs to whatever browser you want based on customizable rules. The interface is simple and clean. Once I've set up my rules, I really don't even remember it's there--but my links automatically go to different browsers based on the rules I've set up. A must for people who use different browsers for different links. I use Epichrome to create single-site browsers and Browser Fairy works extremely well with those apps for routing links in complicated ways.
