Keyboard shortcut for opening current Safari page in Google Chrome
Authored by: vertigo on Jun 12, '12 12:34:44PM

Another hassle-free way to dealing with this is the Safari extension "Eject To Flash", which will allow you to open a page in Chrome either by clicking a menu button or a keyboard command (Command + E).

A nice feature is that you can also set it to close the tab in Safari at the same time.

My only gripe is that, if Chrome wasn't already open, it will create a blank tab as well as open your link. Haven't figured out a way for Chrome to not always open a blank tab when opening an external link for the first time. If Chrome is already open (but with no windows open), it'll work as expected.

If you mean from Mike Hardy's script try the modified version below.

on open location theURL
	tell application "System Events"
	-- Check if Chrome is running if so make a new window.
		if name of processes contains "Google Chrome" then
			tell application "Google Chrome" to make new window
		end if
	end tell
	tell application "/Applications/Google Chrome.app"
		activate
		delay 0.1 -- The application needs some time to set up the first window if starting from scratch.
		set URL of active tab of first window to theURL
	end tell
end open location[code]

No, sorry, I meant if you use Eject To Flash you get the extra blank tab when Chrome opens for the first time.
