Use AppleScripts to send URLs from browser to browser
Authored by: macnai on Mar 30, '06 06:16:35AM

Can this be made to work with Internet Explorer for those rare occasions nothing else will do...I had a play with the script but no joy (if I'm honest I was just stabbing in the dark). Thanks

i purposely excluded i.explorer, but here you go:

from $browser -> explorer

...
do shell script "open -a 'internet explorer' " & quoted form of myURL

from explorer -> $browser

...
tell application "Internet Explorer"
	set myURL to do script "window.location.href"
end tell
...

Thanks for your help here. I still can't get any of the scripts in this whole to work with IE. In IE, I can get the URL to open in other browsers, but I can't get other browsers URL to launch in IE. I'm really no good at scripting either so I'm no help. TIA
