  1. I know this isn't exactly the answer you were seeking but I'd use the smart little utility PopClip for that. There is a free trial so you could try it to see if it works for you. (It does a lot more than merely convert html to markdown, of course. I find it invaluable.) Stephen

  2. For those who absolutely must to have some shortcuts to open different Chrome profiles but can't use this Workflow extension, here is a little something that is very minimal but helps me navigate through my profile. You can create your own Alfred workflow, that triggers by an input with arguments. Link this trigger to a "Run Script Action" object. Configure the Script Action with the following snippet: query=$1 /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --args --profile-directory="Profile $query" This will take your first argument of the commend and append it to the "Profile " word. Now, I have list of profiles in my chrome that I would like to open. I simply associate them with numbers in my head (I don't have that much). To help you find the number of the profile, or as a matter of fact, an actual identifier of the profile in case you have something different that just Profile #number Open your Chrome profile, type in search bar "chrome://version" You will find the profile name and its path by: Profile Path /Users/<YOUR USER NAME HERE>/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Profile 1 So this number at the end is what I swap out when switching between profiles. Simple, quick hustle This by no means a production ready workflow, but for those who couldn't even try out the current workflow due to the error above and need some solutions. This what it looks like for me in the end CHROME: And SCRIPT:

  3. Thanks @Alfred0! My most favorite use-case is actually something that I hadn't originally thought about: "Search Google as You Type" Google has become more and more of a question-answering-machine. So many times, I just want a quick answer and am not looking at reading articles/blogs etc. For those cases, the mode of operation is "search google -> look at result -> move on". The extra pane fits so well for them! And ofc, pressing enter would open the same page in browser if I want to interact with that page further. @Andrew The above involved writing this script filter: I would agree that writing such a script filter is a minimal-effort, no-hassle thing. It does feel like a teeny-tiny duplication-of-function though, given that Alfred already has awesome web-searches. Is there a way to access the URL the web-searches are building? Or, would it be possible to expose those URLs through press-secretary? Or, is that not desirable due to privacy concerns? Also, is there a programmatic way of accessing the web-searches? cc: @deanishe @vitor (that way, someone could programmatically build a workflow mirroring the web-searches and their keywords if they want) I scoured through various plists and alfdbs, but couldn't find where they are stored... Are they stored in some proprietary format / right inside the binary? Or did I miss something obvious? Having said all this, I must agree I don't really foresee much value in doing this for all web-searches because with the exception of google and wolframalpha, I would assume most of the searches are such that they require further interactions with results (like clicking a link, copying some text etc). Aside: Here's a different (vertical) configuration I've been toying with:
