I have a web application which has compatibility issues with MAC chrome, is there a way I can launch the same web application in Safari using any script after checking if the browser is chrome.

we seriously need more information on your problem, namely the name of the application. – Lorenzo Von Matterhorn Mar 13 '13 at 16:00
Please, it is Mac (short for Macintosh), not MAC (Media Access Control). – kalaracey Mar 13 '13 at 16:20
@Beginner: I don't think it's possible but either way it's certainly a very ugly workaround. Surely it is better to solve the compatibility issues? What is the specific problem that prevents it working with Chrome? – James Mar 13 '13 at 16:21

If you are just looking for a quick way to open the current tab in Safari, you could assign a shortcut to a script like this:

tell application "Google Chrome"
    URL of tab 1 of window 1
end tell
tell application "Safari"
    open location result
end tell
