BrokenURL v1.4.0

Allows you to choose which browser to open when clicking a URL.

BrokenURL is Windows URL router. When you or a process tries to open a URL, BrokenURL will ask you in which browser to open it. Also it allows you to open it in a private tab or not of the selected browser and you can choose without cookies or extensions.

BrokenURL will not disturb the internal URL transitions within an opened browser. The browser can handle that on its own. But any URL opened from external apps (installers; uninstallers; even IM messagers like Skype and other similar processes) will be under your control with BrokenURL.

Core Features are:

"Open URL with" browser selection dialog.
Private tabs support for all browsers.
Presets for usual browser choices for different sites and URL source apps.
Shorteners support to reveal the original URL.
