Option in workflow Open URL action to open in the background

Recommended Posts

The workflow Open URL action only has one custom option, which is whether to use the default application or pick a specific one. It would be great if it supported the other options available when opening URLs, most notably the ability to open a URL without bringing the application forward.

This can be accomplished with a Workflow. Use a Run Script Action with default options and code:

open -ga 'Safari' 'https://example.com'

Replace Safari with the browser you want and https://example.com with the relevant Workflow, but keep in mind Chrome doesn’t support being opened in the background due to a long-standing bug.
