Fluid Apps try to keep your browsing limited to the website or webapp you chose when you created the Fluid App. Therefore, any Fluid App will send you to your system default web browser (like Safari or Firefox) if you browse to a URL "outside" that website. Now, determining what constitutes a "website" is more black art than exact science. "Website" is in ...

Firefox Firefoxes is a shell scripts that will install all major versions of Firefox on OS X, and set up separate profiles so you can use them simultaneously.

The way URL opening in Mac OS X is actually more complicated than you would think. When you click a URL, Mac OS X does not just pass the browser the URL to open; instead, it sends it an Apple Event, with the ID kAEGetURL, containing the URL. I never really used Automator (it's just way too slow and limited for my typical use), so I'm not sure about this, ...

It will still take 30 clicks, one for each link, but… Remember that Cmd ⌘ on Mac is usually equivalent to Ctrl ⌃ on Windows. Cmd ⌘ Click will open a link in a new a tab behind the current one, if you click a link. Cmd ⌘ Shift ⇧ Click will open the new tab & bring it to the front. These are the default settings [iirc] but they can be changed ...

You could use the all powerful open command to achive this using a shell script / apple script. Not necessarily the nicest way, but that's the way I do it. open http://apple.stackexchange.com -a Firefox.app would be the basic command to open this page in Firefox. You can easily wrap this in a nice to use apple script - let me know if you need to know how!...

This is called hand off It allows you to continue where you left off in an app on one Device when you are accessing another device. It works via the AppleID not the local user. When your Mac computers and iOS devices are within Bluetooth range of each other (about 33 feet or 10 meters), they can automatically “hand off” what you’re doing from one ...

I had the same problem and wrote a little AppleScript to handle this. You can find the app here: https://github.com/biafra23/Default-Fluids You need to make this script your default browser. This can be achieved with Safari: Menu -> Safari -> Preferences -> General -> Default web browser The source is in https://github.com/biafra23/Default-Fluids/blob/...

Actually, Bonjour is still there, but you have to include it yourself. Just go to Preferences > Bookmarks, and enable what you'd like there.

You can technically install one of the many PDF viewers for iOS from the App Store, save the PDFs within the app, and you are good to go. As long as the PDF is saved locally, you won't need an active Internet or Wi-Fi connection. One of the most popular and and 1st party app is Apple Books. If you couldn't find it installed, you can open the referred link ...

The delete/backspace key navigation has been removed. To restore it: Quit Safari. Open Terminal and enter this code at the command line: defaults write com.apple.Safari com.apple.Safari.ContentPageGroupIdentifier.WebKit2BackspaceKeyNavigationEnabled -bool YES Restart Safari.

You can use Choosy and set the rules for the URL you’ve created in Dock. Not only does it work for the URL in the Dock, the rules also apply to all the links you open in Safari, Firefox, or Chrome. If you need a certain domain, or URL patterns to be opened in separate browser, then Choosy is the one you need.

Don't use the open command. Google Chrome: /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome "file:///Users/me/index.html#my-anchor" Safari: osascript -e 'tell application "Safari" to open location "file:///Users/me/index.html#my-anchor2"'

I don't think you can do this in Safari on the iPhone but you could use a 3rd party browser app. Many of those will let you set the browser agent. One browser I know does this is 'Atomic Web Browser'. This may not work in all cases as some websites may use other ways of determining which content to show, for example, some will detect the screen dimensions. ...

You should try opera Opera 12 download it fast and works well. Caveat: Opera only works on Macs with Intel-based processors. If you have a PowerPC chip (G5), good luck. Opera 12 won't work.

Expanding on my comment above.... See the comment by user kerma at this related StackFlow article His little command line app at https://github.com/kerma/defaultbrowser does what you need. He provided the source code but it was designed for 10.9. A small change can make it to compile on 10.6 as well. I tested it on my system and it worked correctly. All ...

A number of apps will let you do approximately this, but as far as I'm aware only Choosy ($10) has the flexibility to decide which to use based on which browsers are open. (All of these apps are designed to let you pick a browser when you click a link, and some, Choosy included, also let you make rules based on the link URL or source app. If that's all you ...

Download an iPad browser, such as Dolphin Browser or Opera Mini. Then download a web browser that is iPhone/iPod touch only, such as Mango Browser, iFox FREE, Sphere, or Full Screen Web Browser (99¢). Then you can run an iPad browser in the full iPad mode and run another browser that is in the 1x 2x iPhone mode.

The best approach is to use the Repeat With Action with the lines in file option selected. This allows you to read the CVS file on disk and iterate thru the rows as Fake Variables. You can then access these Fake Variables in other Actions which can fill out the web form (or whatever you need). As seen in the screenshot above, I'm using a Do JavaScript ...

Todd's answer is correct, however, Google has since updated their URLs slightly, so... instead of: *google.com*/accounts/ServiceLoginAuth* use: *google.com*/ServiceLoginAuth* PS I don't have enough rep to post this as a comment on the original answer :/

For the impatient: You have two possibilities: PowerPC-based Mac: TenFourFox and no Flash. Intel-based Mac: Opera (thanks to Cybermatatu for this one!) with older Flash 10.3 (beware, Flash 10.3 is an archived version and is no longer supported nor updated with security fixes by Adobe). Long version: If you use an Intel processor you can use Opera: ...

I have had some success in a Flash-less world by using Safari, and enabling the Develop menu. Then when I get to a page that requires Flash, I can set the User Agent to report as an iPad and I will get videos streamed in a QuickTime player rather than Flash-based.
