  1. @Chris Messina this is indeed a UI issue, however minor, as the underlying feature works as expected (all URLs are routed via macOS). Alfred should really dynamically be showing the correct default handler if possible. Taking suggestions from this thread (thanks for the relevant input), I've updated Alfred to show "Open With" instead of "Browser", and the default handler will automatically update as you type, for example: This should be in the 4.3.2 pre-release in the next few days. Cheers, Andrew

  3. I guess they were referrring to So storing both the encrypted data and the en-/decryption key in the same unprotected storage ("plainly on disk") is indeed a horrible idea. Storing it in a place that is potentially vulnerable to direct access via malicious websites in case the browser itself is attackable via a browser vulnerability is another issue. The latter is the reason why it is generally not the best idea to use a browser's own password management feature.

  4. Doesn't matter, I'm afraid. People will still add too many workflows and they will still add slow workflows, and then they'll write Vero an email asking why it doesn't work. I'm sorry, there isn't really a balance to be struck. For a feature to be considered, the risk of misuse or misbehaviour must be basically zero. The Alfred team just doesn't have the capacity to be fielding an extra bunch of support requests, and you can't make trade-offs when you've nothing to trade with.

  5. I use Brave rather than Safari or Chrome, but the "Web Bookmarks" feature doesn't find my Brave Bookmarks. Configuration: macOS Sierra 10.12.6 Brave Version 0.59.35 Chromium: 72.0.3626.81 (Official Build) (64-bit) Web Bookmarks Feature is Configured as follows: Sources: "Google Chrome Bookmarks" Show Bookmarks "via keyword" = "bm" Open Bookmarks "in macOS default browser" If I add a bookmark to brave and search for it using "bm" it is not found. If I add the same bookmark to Chrome, it works fine.

  6. Hi, @faltoo, welcome to the forum. That's exactly why it's at the top. If you enter "pu" and select your "Show pull requests" action a few times, you'll retrain Alfred to put that first. You can tell Alfred to ignore AirPort Utility completely by adding the comment alfred:ignore to it (do a Get Info on the app in Finder). You can also reset Alfred’s “knowledge” in Alfred Preferences > Advanced > Clear Knowledge, but you’ll likely also lose a lot of training you’d rather keep. More generally, it's not a good idea to blindly action things in Al

  8. Yes! This is exactly what I was suggesting — it's both more accurate and doesn't obtrusively get in the way of the default/majority case: Thanks for hearing me out and considering this discussion and moving quickly on an implemented solution, @Andrew! And thank you @Mr Pennyworth for summarizing the different perspectives and moving the core conversation forward which, in my view, resulted in a better Alfred for everyone. 😅

  9. @peegeebee If by workflow, you're referring to the default web search for Google Translate, the URL structure was changed by Google a couple of days ago. If you update to the Alfred 4.3.2 pre-release (by going to the Update tab, choosing "pre-releases" from the dropdown menu at the bottom and updating), you'll see that this URL has already been updated to reflect Google's change Cheers, Vero

  10. I love this discussion minus the part where @Chris Messina felt unwelcome. From my limited interactions with @deanishe and @vitor I feel damn confident that no one on this thread means to attack / argue in bad faith with anyone. MacOS settings: I don't agree with the thesis that Apple's "Default Web Browser" setting is misleading or incomplete. "Web" implies http(s), no? I don't see any ambiguity there. Apple is saying "choose an app to open http(s) urls". It is just that for all other URL schemes, Apple hasn't provided a UI. But whatever UI is present, it is precise, and comp

  11. I’d say the issue might be the amount of back and forth. There are three Alfred veterans trying to help on this thread (and in your others, there were multiple as well). In general, one of us is enough and the others move on to help someone else or only make a small comment for completeness. But since you continue to argue back (not a criticism), the others will try to further clarify the points already made and fill any gaps, which makes it so you have more people to respond to (while we still only have one each—you). Yes, but to be honest the example answer you gave is

  14. List the contents of a directory and act on them. Call the workflow with rdn to sort from the most recently modified, rdo for the reverse; rda to sort from the most recently added, rdz for the reverse. To act on the selections, use the standard Alfred shortcuts. You can activate file actions, dive into directories, preview files, add them to the file buffer — whatever you want to do that is supported by Alfred. ⌥↵ opens the selection in Finder, while ⇧↵ clears the cache for rda and rdz. By default the Workflow looks in ~/Downloads. Change the value in th

  15. Generally speaking, no, you can't tell Alfred to use a different browser to your default one. Neither globally nor for specific features. You can specify a different browser in a workflow, so if there are just a few you want to open in Brave, you could recreate them in a workflow (it's only a Keyword plus an Open URL). Choosy might also be worth a look. You can set that as your default browser and have it send URLs to any browser you like according to your own rules.

  17. If I have this snippet: If I do a search like: Nothing gets matched because Alfred only searches over snippet titles. In typinator the quick search includes both titles & content which makes it much nicer to use. It would be awesome if Alfred Snippets could support this kind of search. Probably as a separate search (perhaps there are users who only want to match on titles). Thank you.

  19. Thanks for the feedback, I sometimes add options into workflows first to see how well they are received, and how well they work. I already have a note to bring this same option from the Browse in Alfred to the default navigation options, but at this point, it will likely remain a simple checkbox to keep this complexity of understanding this feature low.

  27. Safari automatically reads your text messages and asks you to auto-fill any two-factor codes it finds: I don't use Safari (I use Chrome) and I was sick of having to manually type the codes from my messages. This workflow reads your message history and finds the most recent 5, 6, 7, or 8 digit two-factor codes. When you select a code and press <enter> it is copied to your clipboard, or you can press <⌘+enter> and it will copy the code to your clipboard and paste it into the active application.

  30. It is (in my opinion) still way better than not using a password management at all. I am not really in a position to judge that. The github issue is more than 4 years old, so I hope they learned something since then. Personally, I am using the Firefox extension without having investigated any closer, I'm trusting (perhaps wrongly so) that a security company does at least a few things right.

  32. @Kalaschnik Given Alfred's primarily intended to be used from the keyboard, a hover-over would require moving from the keyboard, grabbing the mouse and hovering over the particular results. Perhaps in your case, as you're not using the text auto-expansion feature, something like a List Filter workflow instead of snippets might be better suited. You can then have a title and subtext, and then have that paste text. Here's how List Filters work: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/inputs/list-filter/ Then connect a Copy to Clipboard utility to paste y

  33. I got curious when the latest 4.3.2 release notes said there was a spelling mistake in the "clipboard" preferences, so I got bored and played "spot the mistake" and ended up actually finding a different spelling error. I think the below text in the "advanced" section is meant to say "if it has been".

  35. This is what I mean: There is no limitation. craftdocs:// would have Just Worked if you'd left it set to "Default Browser". You considered the UI, formed an incorrect mental model about the way it works, and then came to post a feature request for the way it already works. That's not unusual, but it is the first time it's happened for this feature. People have been putting non-HTTP URIs in that box for a decade without apparent confusion, which suggests to me that—even if it is technically incorrect—the dialog fits most people's mental model of "opening URLs o

  36. Seems to me that what you’re pointing out is that Apple’s UI isn’t accurate. That “Default web browser” is the same thing. Alfred can follow macOS’ example or deviate from it. Considering this is the first time I recall this being an issue on these forums, it seems that not deviating has worked out fine, and changing that to another option not used anywhere else is opening the door to confusion. You should consider mentioning it to Apple via Feedback Assistant. If they change it, I’d see a bigger argument for Alfred to follow. But I don’t think they will, an

  39. You misunderstand: "Default Browser" means "default application for the given URL scheme". Alfred just passes the URL to macOS to open. The URL is only sent to a specific application if you choose a specific application. It’s functionally equivalent to calling /usr/bin/open "scheme://blah" vs /usr/bin/open "scheme://blah" -a SomeApplication and already works the way you describe.

    firefox bookmark search

    Firefox is about 2x as popular as Safari though: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_web_browsers#W3Counter_(May_2007_to_September_2018). It seems to me that usage is no longer a valid reason. And that "<5%" of Firefox users still paid the same price for their copy of Alfred as everyone else. Perhaps you should offer a discount for Firefox users seeing as they're forced to go without such useful functionality.

    Thanks for the great work @bkmontgomery! I forked your repo and added two calculations that I frequently find useful: 1. What is the original number that number a is b% less than? 2. What is the original number that number a is b% more than? These are tricky to remember how to calculate. These can be accessed by: `% 100 is 2% lt` `% 100 is 2% gt1` You can grab the updated workflow here: https://github.com/AdamWagner/alfred-percent-change @bkmontgomery, feel free to integrate changes into your original repo.

    Stock Charts

    I would love to see support for stock charts, similar to what Apple is doing with Spotlight search in El Capitan. I'd like to be able to type in a symbol (e.g. AAPL) and it would display a live stock chart, ideally customizable in terms of range (1 day, 1 month, 6 month, etc.) and when selected, would take me to Google Finance. I have a lot of additional ideas for this, but this would be a basic start to something great! Thanks for the consideration!
