Juggle multiple browsers on your Mac.

Manually or automatically.

Browser Extensions

Open any browser from a single link

Stay browser-agnostic

No more manual copy and paste of links. Just click it.
See any link before opening

See what you're opening

…but the URL doesn't see you before you open it.


Hide browsers you don't need often or sort the list however you want. You can also customize when to open the selection and when to just open a default browser.

Always the right browser

Configure rules to automatically open URLs with specific properties in the browsers you like. You want Netflix links to open in Safari but YouTube in Chrome? Go ahead.

Make it your own

With the Mini Mode, Redirector gives you more control over how your selection window looks. And with the option to open it where the mouse is, it's always close to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?
First you set Redirector as your default browser. After that any link you open e.g. by clicking on it will open a window containing installed applications capable of opening that link, or automatically open an application you configured.
Which browsers are supported?
Any application capable of opening http, https or file URLs. Notable examples include Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Edge. A Safari extension is included within the app.
What are the system requirements?
Any Mac (Intel or Apple Silicon) running macOS 10.14 (Mojave), 10.15 (Catalina) or 11.0 (Big Sur) is supported.
How can I open links using rules without interaction?
Head over into Preferences and enable “Always open directly” in the rule.
Do you support private browsing?
Yes, but you need to enable it for each browser separately. Open Preferences and add the private browser in the General settings.
Why not in Safari?
Safari does not accept arguments to control how links are opened.
What is an "Application Script" and why is it required to open private browsers?
All Mac apps in the Mac App Store are sandboxed. However this means Redirector cannot open other browsers with specific arguments. The Application Script, which Redirector will guide you through how to install, enables this exact capability by opening the browser on Redirector's behalf.
Do you support browser profiles?
Targeting specific browser profiles is not yet supported.
Do you support browsers in virtual machines?
Yes, but you need to use Parallels Desktop or another VM that supports creating fake Mac apps for apps inside VMs. Head over into Preferences and add the custom .app in the General settings.


Main Application:
None of the URLs you open are saved anywhere, other than in the history of the browser you opened the link with. Any data Redirector uses to persist customizations is managed by macOS and does not leave your Mac. I don't want your data.

Browser Extensions:
Whenever you choose to open a link or the current page in Redirector, it is opened straight in Redirector and not stored anywhere. These permissions are required for the extensions to function:
