Choose browser when opening a URI

Project Description

Package Description

chooser is a graphical utility that enables one to choose which web browser to use when opening a URI.

Latest Version

Quick Start

Make sure that pyxdg and wxPython are installed on your system. If you have pip installed, run:

pip install chooser

You can also download the source tarball, unpack, and run:

python setup.py install

from within the source directory.

To invoke the utility when attempting to view a selected URI via the mouse popup menu provided in many desktop environments, set your default web browser to:

chooser "%s"

By default, chooser searches for several common web browsers. One may also specify which browsers to display in the configuration file ~/.config/chooser/chooserrc as follows:

[Browsers]
