I want specific urls to open certain desktop apps, but I want to detect the urls with my own rules. I am running OS X, but if there's an OS independent way to do that, I'd prefer that. Is there a way to do that?
In chrome web apps can apparently register a content handler and have their web app handle specific urls instead of opening in a new tab (or whatever). I am curious if I can add these myself? (stackoverflow reference)
I went to Settings > Show Advanced Settings... > Content Settings... (in Privacy) > Manage Handlers. There seems to be a list of handlers there, but I don't see how I can add one. Should I just create a Chrome Plugin?
I also know there is BrowserFairy that sounds like it does what I want on OS X...
