Use AppleScripts to send URLs from browser to browser
Authored by: sophistry on Mar 29, '06 08:58:15AM

If you are already using Quicksilver I suggest you check out the Proxy Objects available in beta mode. Go to QS prefs and choose Application pane and check "enable advanced features" beta. Then, go to Catalog QuickSilver and choose Proxy Objects. Then go to Actions URLs and choose Open URL With.

Current Web Page is a proxy object that you can hand off to any other program by using Open URL With action and then choose the app you want. Like this:

Activate QS
Type currw (to get the current web page proxy object)
Tab
Type ow (to get Open URL with action)
Tab
Type Fire (to get firefox)
Return

Yet another thing that Quicksilver does that I didn't know how to do. I don't mind writing, or in this case copying, Applescript, but QS once again shows off and saves me the trouble.

I swear I'm more amazed by that app everyday.
