I am new to this so this maybe a trivial question but I have a private web app that would like to deep link the chrome into it so when users visit it on safari I could give them the option to open chrome through the web app or when they are on chrome to be able to open Safari. However I wasn't able to do that using the URI scheme whereas I was able to do the same thing with other applications other than Safari and chrome (like open Microsoft word) I was wondering if such a deep linking possible and how and if not why?

  • So you basically want to add a link onto your web page which says "Reload page in Chrome" and, after the user does just that, starts Chrome on the computer of the user with your page open? – nohillside Aug 2 '17 at 18:18
  • Something in that sense yes and if I can't do that then maybe just open the chrome app via an actionable button. – GotitJS Aug 2 '17 at 18:19
  • Deep linkin' is something different! No deep link: Ask Different. Deep link: Ask Different GotitJS ...both linked from another site. – klanomath Aug 2 '17 at 18:35
  • @klanomath My initial intent to do what patrix mentioned but I wasn't able to do that and so I wondered if I could deep link chrome app into the web app. – GotitJS Aug 2 '17 at 18:48
  • What if the user does not have Chrome installed on their device? – IconDaemon Aug 2 '17 at 23:59
