Browser Bunch 22.214.171.124
is a launcher used with a file full of Urls. The file is specified on the command line. This can be done conveniently using SendTo Menu. Windows Seven Jump List is even better. Pin the program to Taskbar. Drag plain text files full of Urls onto the Taskbar Icon.
If the program is run with no params, it displays usage info.
Here's a screen shot of the Gui Window that pops up allowing you to select your preferred browser for this group of Urls:
As you can see some of the buttons are blank(they are all
blank on first run.) If you press a blank button a File Open Dialog will allow you to associate a browser exe with that button. Or you can cheat and just add the paths to your browsers to the .ini file.
The program also has an option to use a filter. Say as example I saved 500 IMDB search Urls to my Urlfile. But I only want to show those that have "wind" in the name like Windstruck or Gone With The Wind. I type wind in the InputBox and only those Urls will be added to the command tail.
As you can see in the screen shot, the label gives the stats on the length of the command tail, and the number of tabs that would open if you launch a browser. Just press Esc Key or click on the 'x' in the corner of the window to abort the launch.
It doesn't have any fancy mechanism to collect urls. But as I noted in the Readme.txt EditPadLite7 will handle the drop of the address bar text from most browsers. Worked with chrome, MaxThon and Firefox. Didn't like Opera. But select then copy and paste works with everything.
edit: update 126.96.36.199
fixed bugs. Offers to set default button to default browser if button is not assigned.
edit: update 188.8.131.52
added a /setup command line switch. Use it to assign multiple browsers to buttons all at once.
edit: update 184.108.40.206
added Glass on Vista and later OS.
edit: still v 220.127.116.11 but it includes a hotkey to capture URLs from Firefox tabs. It's just a macro to automate saving a group of urls to a text file. See the Readme.txt and included FFSS.exe files.
edit: Browser Bunch program is the same. But the zip includes a hotkey macro program BBSS.exe (browser bunch session save) to "automatically" collect the URLs from browser tabs in either Firefox or chrome. Use Firefox or chrome to open a set of tabs. Then hit the hotkey to save the tab set to a text file. Then you can use Browser Bunch to open that set with any supported browser. Much easier than dragging address bar icons one at a time or copy paste.
Now has .ini file option for each of the six browsers to set command line switches. Also includes a marcro program to capture the urls and optionally titles, from the open tabs for Chromium or Firefox.
