AppleScript to open current Safari page in Google Chrome via LaunchBar or TextExpander
Authored by: RussellK on Jul 24, '12 07:55:50AM

Pardon my ignorance, but why not just enable the "Develop" menu in Safari (unless this is now enabled by default?), and then use that menu to: Develop >> Open Page With >> [choose desired browser from list].

That's what I've been doing for as long as I can remember to open current pages from Safari in alternate browsers...

Speed. LaunchBar is faster, easier.

There is actually a reason for that: keyboard support breaks every time Chrome updates. I used to have a custom shortcut in System Preferences, but since the menu item in "Develop Open Page With" includes Chrome's full version number, the shortcut becomes invalid after a Chrome update is installed. And Chrome updates frequently and silently (which, in and of itself, is a good thing). So I resorted to using a Service with AppleScript.

Now I am going to try the OP's new one.
