→ Easily Open the Current Safari Page in Chrome

David Halter1 has released a new Applescript application / bookmarklet combo that makes it extremely simple to open your current Safari tab in Chrome2. I have played with various methods to try to solve this problem, and Mr. Halter’s is the best solution I have come across3.


  1. Probably most famous for nvAlt 

  2. I find it impossible to clearly and simply explain this concept. I keep writing “open the open Safari tab in Chrome,” reading it, and thinking “there has to be a better way.” I still have not found that better way. 

  3. It is easy if you follow the installation instructions, particularly “Right-click (or control-click) on OtherBrowser to bring up the contextual menu and select “Open” to launch it once. All this does is get you past Mountain Lion’s gatekeeper”. I have a feeling that you might run into problems if you skip that step.
