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!

Simple, but so very effective

For all those times you needed to check a website in another browser, or even go to the same site without cookies (but not clearing your own), this simple, simple app is amazing. It is quick to install, sits out of the way until you need it, and the UI is so natural and intuitive that in couple of days I’ve been using it, the extra click (to select the browser) has almost become invisible to me. My day-to-day nominal browsing use remains as produtive as ever, and my multi-browser use-cases have gotten so much more efficient.

I came across this app as a recommendation from the 9to5 Mac website, and am glad I did.

UPDATE: I have one feature request - add support for calendars. Sometimes I click on an invite to add to my work calendar in Outlook/Exchange, and other times I click on an invite to add to my personal calendar in Calendar/iCloud. Trying to use Calendar with my Exchange account has proven disasterous, so I keep them separate, but still need to move between both at times.

Great Concept… Needs more work for heavy users

Love the concept of the app, and something that has been a sore spot in my workflow for some time. For me, I HATE being in TAB HELL (too many tabs for all the web apps). I have seperate instances of Chrome so my main web apps can feel and function more like regular apps and not be stuck somewhere between 2 dozen other tabs which may or may not be for work. This app does not support this. I can only hope this was in an effort to aide the user in only using actual browsers, but there is apparently a set list of Apps it will support and does not give the user to option to "use it anyway". Would have LOVED to open a link in a work email in one of my specific work web app instances of Chrome, but this app falls short.

OH… and for me I would want to use this on command and not left active all the time. Problem is using the "Shift" key to activate doesn't work for email in a web browser because that is the command to open the link in a new tab which will then open the email link in the default email client. Someone didn't think that through!

I would LOVE to give this a 5-star, but with an assumed self-imposed crippling of "approved" browsers and lack of apparent UAT testing on the optional activation setting, 2 is the best I will give it. Hoping it gets better!

Just what I was looking for!

For ages, I've been manually copy-pasting Google links to send them to Chrome, or Facebook links to send them to Firefox (love their FB sandboxing feature). Tedious.

I thougth someone must have a better way to do this, so I searched, and came across Bumpr. It does what I needed, and so much more! It's removed so much subliminal friction by simply allowing me to intercept URL clicks from whatever app, and direct the clicks to the browser of my choice, or even—in some cases—to apps of my choice.

At this price it's a no-brainer. If you've ever wanted to control what browser opens when you click a link in whatever app—like your email app, or messages, or links in documents—just get this. It'll do what you need, and you'll feel like you have more control over your system.
