I made this program last winter break called Link Toss. When you click on a link, it opens it in whatever browser you happen to have open. It's worked pretty solidly for me, but it had a few oddities that I never got around to working out, so I never tried to garner any attention or anything.

Now someone else has come up with the same idea! Choosy is a super pretty fancy looking program that essentially does the exact same thing. And while it's currently in beta, the dude who makes it plans to charge for it when it's ready. Whoa. And I was going to open source Link Toss when I thought it was solid...

Well, shareware is like asking for donations really aggressively basically.

Nah, his is way more polished, which is fine with me since I spent maybe two weeks working on mine.
