Whether you’re a designer, coder, front-end developer or connected to web development in some other way, there’s one thing you can’t take for granted and that’s your website displaying correctly in every browser on the market. Web standards have come a long way since the early days of Mozilla and disgruntled Internet Explorer users, but testing your design in multiple browsers is still very important.
If you’re often stuck in a testing rut for a while – trying to get things right in just the one browser before moving on to the next – then you’ll appreciate how annoying it is when you’re constantly opening the site for testing in the wrong browser. This is usually down to the default browser setting, which is buried somewhere in your Mac’s System Preferences. Don’t despair, there is now an easier way to switch your default browser, and it’s called Objektiv.
The free app installs an item in the system tray in the top right corner of the screen. From here a drop-down menu allows you to set the default between all installed browsers. There is also a Cmd+Tab-style overlay available via an optional hotkey, assignable in the app itself. Switching your default browser has never been quite so easy!
- Quickly and painlessly switch default browser.
- Optional hotkey for an overlay that appears in the middle of the screen.
