Launchy Extension Allows Links to be Opened with External Applications

Friday December 19th, 2003

Henrik Gemal writes in with information about his new Mozilla extension, Launchy: "Launchy will enable you to open links and mailtos with external applications like Internet Explorer, Opera, Mozilla, Mozilla Firebird, Netscape, Outlook, BSPlayer, Windows Media Player and others. Launchy will auto detect all applications. It's a Windows only extension!

"Wanna open a link with Winamp? Just right click and say 'Open link with Winamp'. Wanna send an email to the selected mailto link using Outlook? Just right click and say 'Send email using Outlook'. I think you get the picture. It's great for testing and also for using external mail and media applications."

Launchy 1.5.0 can be downloaded from http://gemal.dk/mozilla/launchy.html.

Does anyone know how to cause mz to autolaunch acrobat and display the contents of the doc? How about just displaying the contents of the .pdf doc inside of mozilla? I prefer to have it externally as I would rather keep navigating while that doc stays open in reader.
