I would like to open some webapps in a secondary browser, so that they are grouped in a separate window outside of my main browser.

In a secondary browser's webapp, I would like to be able to right-click a link and select "Open in the default browser", so that the link opens in my primary browser.

How do I do that?

Create a browser extension that uses Native Messaging to execute open url on the command line when you right-click a link.

This is all I could think of. I wanted this too so I built it for Chrome.

  • Hey @kumar303, thank you for chiming in! I've tried your extension and it didn't work for me. Can I contact you via an instant messenger to figure it out? Sep 14, 2017 at 8:03
  • Sorry to hear that. The best thing would be to file a bug in the repo.

On Windows 10 with Chrome, I have found that opening a link in an incognito window will open a link in a new incognito window if none existed, or open a link in a new tab in an incognito window that does exist.
