[prMac.com] Sao Sebastiao do Cai, Brazil - Guilherme Rambo, an independent Mac developer, today is pleased to announce the release of BrowserFreedom 1.1.2 for OS X. Since its launch, BrowserHub got a lot of attention because It solves a simple yet frustrating problem for many users: the management of multiple web browsers on OS X. Due to trademark issues, the app is now rechristened from BrowserHub to BrowserFreedom. Version 1.1.2 fixes a crash that would occur when launching the app, and a new feature called "URL expander" which allows the user to copy the original URL from a shortened link.
With BrowserFreedom, the user creates simple rules based on the URL and select a browser to open links matching those rules. So the next time they click on a link in Mail for instance and the link matches that particular rule, It will open on the browser defined for that kind of link. Examples of rules that could be created with BrowserFreedom include: "open all YouTube links in Chrome," "open video links in VLC," or "open my bank's website on Internet Explorer in Parallels." The rules are created on an interface very similar to Mail's rules preferences.
BrowserFreedom's main features:
* Creation of rules to determine which sites should be opened with which browsers
* Rules can be created based on protocol, host, path, file extension or app
* Fast default browser switching with global keyboard shortcut
* Option-click any link anywhere to choose which browser should be used to open It
New features on 1.1.2:
* App is now called BrowserFreedom
* URL expander: copy the original URL from shortened links
* Fixes a crash that would occur when launching the app
* At least two web browsers installed on the system
* OS X 10.10 or later
* 64-bit processor
* 5 MB
Pricing and Availability:
BrowserFreedom 1.1.2 is a free update for current users of BrowserHub. For new users, the app costs just $9.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and is available its official website or through the Mac App Store in the Utilities category.
