Display bluefish edited HTML pages in Chimera Web Browsers
If you use bluefish to edit your Apache web sites, here's how to customize bluefish so that it displays a currently edited page in Chimera.

Open bluefish, go to menu Options, Preferences, choose the External tab, and change the browser command with this line:
open -a 'Navigator' `echo %s | sed 's;
(This is shown on three lines; enter it as one line without any spaces between the lines). The above assumes that your pages are located in /Library -> WebServer -> Documents, your web site is accessible via, and you want to display the page with Chimera.

You can easily change the browser with open -a 'NameOftheBrowser', the location to suit your needs, and use a fixed IP in place of a domain name.

[Editor's note: I have no experience with bluefish, and I haven't tested this hint myself.]

You should use:

open -a 'Navigator' `echo %s | sed 's;

instead of:
open -a 'Navigator' `echo %s | sed 's;

Just missed file:///

Sorry, sorry
