MultiBrowser allows you to take control of the many browsers that you may have installed on your Mac.  Whenever you click on a link in just about any application (e.g. Mail, Preview, etc), MultiBrowser will appear and allow you to choose which browser to open that link in.  MultiBrowser's browser selection window is highly configurable allowing you to change its colors, size, and more so that you can decide exactly what it should look like.  MultiBrowser uses built-in Mac OS X services so that it does not even have to be running until you actually click a link - this means that it will not waste any of your Mac's resources.  MultiBrowser also has additional options for changing how browsers are launched, handling multiple monitors, and more.  It has optional usage tracking (which will not be shared with anyone except yourself) to let know how many times you use each browser.

Known Issues

Animate Border (Selected Browser) does not always animate correctly
This appearance option may not always animate correctly.  Sometimes, it will not show the correct browser as being highlighted.  However, this is superficial; MultiBrowser will always use the browser that you click on regardless of whether or not the selection has moved over it.
