Open link in non-default browser

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

From Mac Mail or some other programs, I would like to be able to open a link in a browser that is not default browser. My default browser is Firefox 4. But there are times I want to open a link in Safari or some other browser. When I right click on a link, one of the menu options is "Open link in browser". I sure which there was an option that would "Open Link >" with a submenu of installed browsers.

 

Yes, I can open Safari Preferences and change the default browser, open the link, then change the setting back. But, I would not prefer to have to do this each time. A dropdown Menubar list to select the default browser would be OK.

 

Is there anyway to do this? Or would it to be added under the "Services >" menu item?

 

Any help will be appreciated!

 

Thanks & Enjoy life,

Steven

 

P.S. Using Mac OSX 10.6.7.

You can just drag the link to the safari icon.

Graham,

 

Drag & drop works fine. Thanks for the tip. I will still look for a menu bar applet to change the default browser. But, I not in a big hurry to find such an app. I know there is one. Just can't think of the name. Your tip takes care of the itch for now.

 

Enjoy life!

Steven
