[SOLVED] Chrome search from Alfred

Recommended Posts

When I run a Google search from Alfred, Chrome launches but the window with the search terms is often behind the new tab window and whatever I had open from the last time I used Chrome. Is there a way that Alfred can launch a search in Chrome similarly to how it works in Safari when Safari is the default browser, i.e. the search results are shown in the frontmost window?

Alfred simply passes the request to the OS; how it is handled is determined by macOS/the browser.


If I understood the issue correctly, this is an intricacy with Google Chrome. I seem to recall an open bug report in their tracker regarding this behaviour.
