Switch Tabs to a Different Web Browser

If you spend a lot of time switching between web browsers for development or for whatever other reason, you’ll find Switch useful.

Switch is a handy free menu bar utility that transfers all browser tabs and windows between web browsers in Mac OS X.

Whether you use Safari, Chrome, or Firefox, you can easily send whatever the active windows are to a different browser and back again just by pulling down the menu and selecting “Transfer to” that app.

Install Switch to find a new menu bar item, then you need to right-click the icon to activate the pull-down menu to find the browsers to switch to.

Within Switch preferences, you can also select a default browser to transfer to, that allows you to just click the menu bar icon itself to send all active windows there.

You must use switch from an active browser window in order for it to work, or else you will get an error that says “Cannot transfer from current application”.

Anyway, if this sounds interesting to you, check it out, it’s free, and quite useful for those who juggle multiple between Safari and Chrome browsers.

Thanks for the tip Joseph

    Appears to be a very limited use case, I would prefer something with a wider spectrum of value.
