Juggle multiple browsers on your Mac.

Manually or automatically.

Browser Extensions

Stay browser-agnostic

Open any link in any browser. Or switch between browsers with the Redirector browser extensions for Safari, Chrome, Edge and Firefox.

Redirector also responds to redirector:// (http) and redirectors:// (https) URLs.


You decide which browsers are included. Hide browsers you don’t need, sort the list or configure when exactly Redirector should be shown.

For your private browsing needs, Redirector also allows you to add private sessions for each browser.

Supported Browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Brave, Opera. More to be added.

Let Redirector work for you

Configure rules to automatically open links with specific properties in the right browser. Want to open Google Meet links in Chrome by default? Just one rule away.

Colors are fun!

The Mini Mode gives you control over what your selection window should look like — and how it should behave.

🙋 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) or higher is supported. Beta versions of macOS may not be supported.

How can I open links using rules without interaction?

Head over into Preferences and enable “Always open directly” in the rule.

How do I enable private browsing?

Open Preferences and add the private browser in the General settings.

Why does Safari not appear as a private browser?

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.

Are browser profiles supported?

Targeting specific browser profiles is not yet supported.

Does Redirector 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.

🔒 Privacy

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 Extension

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:

  • tabs: When you click the toolbar icon the extension has to read the current tab's URL. None of your other tabs are read.
  • contextMenus: When you right-click a link the extension adds a context menu item to open that link.
  • declarativeContent (Chrome/Edge-only): The toolbar icons is only enabled when you visit http- or https-URLs, not internal URLs (e.g. chrome://, edge://).
  • history (Safari-only): This is Safari's version of the tabs permission. The extension does not access your history.
