extension ExtPose

Open in external app

Description from extension meta Open a link or the current webpage in an external app.
Image from store Open in external app
Description from store Version 0.3 now installs required VisualC++ runtime files which would cause the extension to fail if they were missing on the pc. ************************************ Version 0.2 corrects a problem with external applications that have a whitespace in their path. You need to update the helper application from within the preferences page as well! ************************************ This extension allows you to open a link or the current webpage in an external application, for example a download manager or another browser (like Firefox, Internet Explorer, Vivaldi, Opera, Otter Browser or any other). External applications can be easily added from within the configuration page. A context menu with the available applications is available for every website, link, selected text or image. NOTE: This program requires a small helper application in order to function. This can be "downloaded" from within the configuration page and must be installed before this extension will work. The helper application is currently only available for Microsoft Windows, but will be ported to Linux soon.
Latest reviews (2019-10-29) Nick Spirov: This function is impossible to implement in any extension, without using a helper program, which is a HUGE SECURITY RISK. The need to install a helper executable should be written in the description! (2018-07-25) Evgeny Vajenin: Заработало но после установки второй вспомогательной программы (2018-06-26) Gaming with Chuckles: very very bad (2017-11-23) Vaughan Leith: don't work (2017-02-21) Carlson Quetsche: Wurde wohl schon ewig nicht mehr weiter verfolgt. Extension arbeitet NUR in Zusammenarbeit mit einem VB-Windows-Tool, welches aber nicht mehr zu erhalten gibt -> folglich NUTZLOS! (2017-02-17) Abu Eg: native client setup program contain virus and deleted by AVAST ANTI VIRUS. i'll report violation to google. (2016-10-16) Thomas Ashcraft: It just works! Exactly what I want. (2016-10-07) Matt Putland: The extension that is required to make this work was picked up by Windows Defender.. I'm not trusting this at all. (2016-09-07) Luděk Novák: Doesnt work without external utility which contains malware. Thank you. (2016-07-01) Joël de Bruijn: Does exactly what it says it does! Since deprecating NPAPI this was hard to do, but the developer uses a local agent to do the actual "opening of the external app". I could use a bit more parameters though, like %date%, %title%, %domain% (now only %URL%).
