Some time ago while using the Search Tabs on Safari and Chrome workflow for Alfred developed by Clinton Strong, I came up with the idea to enhance the workflow to enable the addition of often used “favourites” to speed up getting access to the websites you need. After many hours of programming, many nights of testing, a splash of blood, sweat and tears and an inordinate amount of caffeine while learning how to program in Ruby :D, I can now present Rapid Browser Tabs for Safari and Chrome.
RBT for Alfred has been forked from the Search Tabs on Safari and Chrome workflow (with Clinton’s blessing) and could almost be considered v2 of Clinton’s original workflow. In addition to the ability to searching already open Chrome and Safari tabs and bring them into focus rapidly, it adds the ability to create favourites that can be searched and opened alongside already open tabs in Chrome and Safari.
So, if you are an avid Alfred user, you can get the workflow from the official Github repository directly and log any issues/ideas/feature requests on Github. You can get the full details on use of the workflow in the official Alfred Community Forum post, and it is also up on Packal as well.
All code in this workflow is released under the MIT License. Images used as part of the workflow are licensed only for use in this workflow and must be changed if the workflow is forked in the future.
All images have been licensed from DepositPhotos to Stuart Ryan.
This workflow represents many many hours effort of development, testing and rework. The images licensed for this workflow from DepositPhotos also needed a bit of my moolah. So if you love the workflow, and get use out of it every day, if you would like to donate as a thank you to buy me more caffeine giving Diet Coke, some cake, or to put towards a shiny new gadget you can donate to me via Paypal.
If you are a coder head over to the official Github repo:
- Fork it!
- Create your feature branch: git checkout -b my-new-feature
- Commit your changes: git commit -am ‘Add some feature’
- Push to the branch: git push origin my-new-feature
- Submit a pull request
Command your browser tabs… and don’t let them command you!
