  1. I removed Flash from my system long ago but occasionally I need to make use of the version bundled with Chrome to view certain web pages properly. There are a few workflows like this around, but as the only browsers I use are Safari and Chrome I wanted something a little more direct than Send URL which led me to this alternative made by Runar. There were a few issues with that workflow, so I made a version which (hopefully) deals with everything in a tidy and intelligent manner. If Safari is either not open, or has no windows open, the workflow will post a notification saying so. If you'd like it to also post notifications when URLs are successfully sent to Chrome open the workflow folder (right click the workflow in Alfred and click Show in Finder) and edit the appropriate line in open_in_chrome.scpt (it's clearly marked). The reverse behaviour is also available (i.e.: sending URLs from Chrome to Safari). Hat tip to Carlos-Sz for getting Alfred to run the Applescript properly 🙂 Download (v1.0.2): Open in Chrome GitHub Keywords: openinchrome, openinsafari
  2. Hello! I made an Alfred 3 workflow to search and switch between open windows in the system and Safari (and Chrome) tabs. More app-by-app support are (hopefully) coming. It is uses the companion native app, that's what makes it much faster than the other alternatives. https://github.com/mandrigin/AlfredSwitchWindows/releases Sierra only (at the moment). PS: Thanks to Emanuele Munafò and his "Windows Switcher" workflow for the inspiration.
  3. I use a variety of browsers between home and work, and while my Alfred settings nicely sync between my different computers, my bookmarks do not. I'd love it if I could sync my browser bookmarks to Alfred so they'd be accessible when I search the web.
  4. Here is a workflow I use to instantly view any compatible web page in Instapaper's Text view, without adding it to your Instapaper account. In the workflow, there is two scripts. The upper one (currently connected) is for Chrome. The one on the bottom is for Safari. http://d.pr/f/cp39

  6. As the title said, could someone please (I don't know how to,.,,) create a workflow that let google chrome open a specific url in a new window??? Also safari and firefox too??? Much appreciated.
  7. This is a simple workflow for controlling Google Play Music playback/search in Chrome. It is updated for the version of the web-based music player that was released ~May 2015. The workflow uses the following keywords to control playback in an open Google Play tab: 'gpp': Play/Pause 'gp prev': Previous Song 'gp next': Next Song 'gp search <search term>': Search Music for <search term> Github Repo: http://bit.ly/1ILnjFZ Download: http://bit.ly/1cOMM3y
  8. I'm trying to install this chrome history workflow (https://github.com/tupton/alfred-chrome-history), but I'm not versed in terminal or coding at all. Can anyone further dumb-down the FROM SOURCE section of this repo for me to understand? Much appreciated.
  9. Hi, I made this for myself and thought I'd share. I'm a heavy Gmail user, and I think Gmail works best in Chrome. I wanted to always have a Gmail tab open, and to *not* open multiple Gmail tabs when I use the workflow from other applications. I also wanted the Gmail tab to always be pinned to the left. It can't be done via AppleScript, so I'm using a Chrome Extension called Auto Pin URL. Get it if you want the Gmail tab pinned left (it's not required for the workflow to function. Without it, your Gmail tab will be *wherever* in Chrome): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/auto-pin-url/heodenddhgffdcadgghkghlcjjikaahf Here is the URL you will need to add to Auto Pin URL: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/ Here's the features of the workflow (keyword / explanation): gm - GMail. Whatever you're doing, this brings Chrome to the front and activates the Gmail tab. If there's no Gmail tab, it will create one (and Auto Pin URL will move it to the far left). I have assigned it Shift-Control-z gmn - GMail New. Open a new compose window. (This is the lone exception in that it opens a new tab. I don't like the new compose window you get by typing c in gmail.) I have assigned Shift-Control-x. This tab auto closes once you send the mail. gms - GMail Search gmf - GMail From. Search for sender gmt - Gmail To. Search for recipient gmc - GMail Contacts. Search Gmail contacts gmgi - GMail Inbox ("gi" is Gmail's default Inbox shortcut) gmgt - GMail Sent. Sent items. ("gt" is Gmail's default Sent Mail shortcut) gmga - GMail All Mail. All mail. ("ga" is Gmail's default All Mail shortcut) NOTE: I made this for my Google Apps account. Haven't tested it on a regular gmail account, but I bet it works fine. I'm no AppleScript expert, so my code may be crappy. Buy hey, this workflow works great for me.

  10. SoundCloud Control for Chrome Inspired (err, mostly stolen) by Google Play Control for Chrome. It can change playback, display the current playing song in a notification, and search through soundcloud, all from alfred. Commands scp SoundCloud - Play/Pause sc prev SoundCloud - Previous Song sc next SoundCloud - Next Song sc np SoundCloud - Show what's playing now sc search Search SoundCloud Alternative version Currently it has the same bug as GPC which is that you can't have more than 1 tab of the website opened. I prefer this myself because the whole point of why I made this is so I don't have to switch back to the SC tab again. However, if you'd prefer it to only have it search through the first active tab of each window rather than each tab of each window, then I made a alternative version for you. Download Normal version (searches through all tabs of all windows) Alternative version (searches through all active tabs of all windows)
  11. Hi all! First post here. A workflow of mine involves having a script launch a bookmarklet in Google Chrome. I can, it is true, put the JS code to be executed directly into my script, but that means changing my code in 2 places every time I change something. So with Applescript, opening a bookmark in Chrome is trivial: tell application "Google Chrome" if not (exists window 1) then reopen set coef to URL of bookmark item "Coef" of bookmark folder "Bookmarks Bar" open location coef end tell But when trying this in JXA, everything goes to hell. I've tried countless variations on the following code, var app = Application('com.google.Chrome') var frontWindow = app.windows[0] var myBM = app.bookmarkFolders.whose({title: "Bookmarks Bar"}) var myBM = app.bookmarkFolders["Bookmarks Bar"] var myBM = app.bookmarkFolders.title("Bookmarks Bar") //etc ad nauseam and cannot for the life of me get a handle on a bookmark folder, let alone a bookmark item. bookmarkFolder vs. bookmarkFolders, nothing helped. The last line actually got me an array with the names of the two top-level folders, but that's the closest I got to anything. Anybody has an idea how this gets done? Thanks!
  12. I am just a beginner, but I thought I would share this simple workflow that does not rely on scripts or variables. It is basically a workflow designed to launch Microsoft Office applications and produce a new document from a template document. I have split the workflow by application so you won't be opening a slew of applications and files at once; I believe, in the real world, you may not really want to launch a bunch of applications and files all at once. There is not much documentation to go with this workflow; it uses tools already accessible within the "All Workflow Objects" workflow as a smorgasboard of tools readily accessible. There are no scripts and it does not rely on variables; just basic stuff. Please send me some feedback and let me know if you like this workflow. https://www.dropbox.com/s/hgkff2sdv7sgq6d/LAUNCH 2 OFFICE DOCUMENTS.alfredworkflow?dl=0
  13.

  14. Hey everyone, I'm running on High Sierra and for some reason can't get even the simplest of workflows in Alfred to work with Google Chrome. For example, the workflow in the attached screen shot works when the browser is changed to Safari, but when I try to open it in a Chrome browser, all it does is open a new Chrome window with a blank URL. Any idea what's going on / how to fix it? This is such a core tenet of how I want to use Alfred workflows - I really hope we can figure this out! Cheers, Palmira
  15. Hi, I am trying to open a chrome extension page by adding a custom binding in the Web Search section. This is how its setup: Unfortunately when I try to trigger the custom binding, I get the "There is no application set to open the URL chrome-extension://..." prompt message. When I "choose application" and set it to Chrome, it works. But if I have to "Choose Application" every time I trigger this binding, that would make this a cumbersome process. Looking elsewhere in Alfred, I found a setting that I thought could resolve this issue. Turning on that setting however still launches the "choose application" prompt message when I trigger the custom web-search binding to open a chrome-extension page. Any help is sincerely appreciated. Note I have powerpack, so if there's another way to set this trigger, I'll all open for it. Thanks, Whiskeyjack
  16. Hey Alfred team & community! I have a problem with the Chrome Bookmarks feature because of the way my Chrome is set up. It will take a fairly long explanation of it for me to be able to ask for help, so sorry in advance. I used to run Chrome as my default browser but switched to Safari months ago. I got a job that requires me to use Chrome for work. This means my current setup is Safari -> default browser, Chrome -> work browser. My work is somewhat complicated, with MANY web tools and reference pages I must access and switch between constantly, that's why Alfred's bookmarks feature is easily one of my most used features and very important to me, next to snippets and clipboard history. However, here's the problem: when I transitioned Chrome from my default browser to my work browser, I initially created a second "Person" inside Chrome. So, the profile I actually use today for work is a secondary profile/person inside Chrome. Since apparently Alfred only indexes bookmarks for the primary Chrome profile/person, what I was doing was copying-pasting my bookmarks in bulk from my secondary profile (the one I actually use) into my primary profile (the one Alfred would know how to index, the one I used to have as my default browser but now is useless as I use Safari, despite still being the primary Chrome profile because it's older). What a mess, right? Anyway, this used to work, but I quickly became grumpy with this hacky process. Since there's no way to change which Chrome profile is the default/primary one, I just deleted my primary/older profile. My thinking was that doing this would change my secondary profile into the primary one (since it's now the ONLY profile in Chrome), thus making Alfred index the correct bookmarks, from that profile, without copypasting hacks. Well, it didn't work. Now Alfred just doesn't pull ANY Chrome bookmarks whatsoever. I already restarted both Chrome and Alfred after making this change, but my bookmarks are still invisible to Alfred. What can I do to force Alfred to index these bookmarks for me? Thanks and sorry for the long-winded message!
  17. Hey, sorry if this is the wrong place. I'm new to the forum. Basically, Alfred 3 just randomly started to not opening the proper chrome pages when I do a google search using the bar. The same applies to bookmarks. What I mean is that I'll type something like this: When I hit enter, Chrome opens, but nothing happens.

You should also consider getting into contact with Margus Kerma and donating to Margus also for the work that has bene put into the defaultbrowser binary.

Browsers currently supported: Chrome Firefox Opera Safari Chromium - New in V1.1 Canary - New in V1.1 SeaMonkey - New in V1.1 Screenshots Troubleshooting If you are finding that you are seeing browsers listed that you have installed previously but no longer have on your system you will need to clear out all your default handlers. Unfortunately, this is the only solution I have found to date, you should research it in depth before you use it. The following command will re-initialise all the "handlers" OSX knows about and will therefore resolve the issue, it will also likely require you to set up all your custom file associations again. In other words... you do this at your own risk, I do not support this in any way shape or form... The command you will need to run on the terminal is: lsregister -kill Contributing Fork it!

  19. Google Chrome is my default browser. But as Firefox seems to have made some significant speed improvements I thought I could use both as "default browser". As it is not possible, as one can have only one default browser, I was wondering if there was a way I could set one "Open URL" action to open the url in the front browser whether it is Firefox or Google Chrome. As of today, I only can open the URL in the default browser.
  20. I love Alfred, but I think you forgot something in your new Bookmarklets feature: Why are Safari and Chrome the only source options for new Bookmarklets. Why not show a little love to Firefox, too?
  21. I find using Alfred as an address bar very useful, however one crucial difference is that a normal address bar prefetches the website as I'm typing so when I hit enter, the website loads very fast. In contrast, after typing a website and hitting enter in Alfred, the loading of that website takes a long time in Safari/Chrome. Would it be possible for Alfred to act more as an address bar and trigger a prefetch of a given website to the default browser?
  22. I have an Alfred workflow based on a JXA script. It acts as a control mechanism for focusatwill.com (an online music streaming service). It has basic functionality, play/pause, skip track... This was working fine in an earlier version, interacting with the page using query selectors, e.g. tab.execute({ javascript: "document.querySelector('.playerControls .playButton').click();" }) This site recently refactored their UI to use React. My basic controls still work (using querySelector), but one part of the setup (changing the genre) has broken. It used to use querySelectorAll for this task, but in the new React UI, the controls I need to reach don't exist unless you click in the UI ... In any case, the developers exposed an API in the site code, so I can do stuff like window.faw.play() window.faw.skip() window.faw.genre(genreId) And doing that in the developer console in Chrome works fine. But if I try to do the same using tab.execute in JXA (from Alfred), nothing happens. I'm guessing that I'm running afoul of the security model in Chrome. Does anyone know if what I'm trying to do is even possible (from Alfred/JXA)? Or am I going to have to try to do this as a Chrome extension instead? If it's helpful, here is the repository: https://github.com/tangledhelix/focusatwill-in-google-chrome And there's some discussion between me and someone at focusatwill.com on this commit: https://github.com/tangledhelix/focusatwill-in-google-chrome/commit/eb339cba143cdbc2593c73869e11bcd70f18042a
  23. I installed the Signal Private Messenger desktop client, which is a Chrome Webstore App. I frequently switch to it to message people, by searching for Signal on Alfred—this works correctly, I see the app and can select it. However, when I search for Chrome in Alfred and hit enter, rather than focusing on Chrome app, the computer focuses on Signal; this is annoying because I often use Alfred to change focus between apps on different Mac Spaces, but since Signal is treated as an instance of Chrome, it receives focus instead of an actual browser window. Please let me know if there's any way to disambiguate between the Chrome browser instance and a Chrome Webstore App instance! This is messing with my workflow.
  24. A lot of times when I use the snippet functionality in Chrome the first letter in the keyword stays up after the snippet expands. I've adjusted all the tweaking settings and the issue has persisted. I made sure that the Alfred helper has accessibility permissions and I have re-installed Alfred as well as Chrome. See attached GIF for the behavior. while the GIF shows it happening at the top of the text box, it also happens after I have already been typing in the middle of the paragraph.
  25. Open your current Chrome tab in incognito mode or a new Chrome instance with an empty profile. The latter acts as if you were opening Chrome fro the first time without changing a single setting. That is particularly useful when a setting o plugin is making it difficult to use a page. Call it with ic, and it will open a new incognito window with your current tab. ⌘↵ will also close the tab in your current window. ⌥↵ opens the current tab in a new Chrome instance, and ⌃↵ also closes the tab in the current window.
