    How to create a special "Open in .." bookmark in Safari

    Is there any way to create special bookmarks in Safari to allow the currently displayed to be opened in another browser?

    Kinda like the Firefox program on my PC ... It has a way to reopen page in IE.

    Anyone know?

    Although it would be cool, I doubt that there is a way to do this due to Apple's sand boxing strictures. The best I can think of,is copy the link, open another web browsing app and then paste in the address there.

    Sorry.

    You can do this if you download iCab mobile. There is a JavaScript function that you type in a bookmark in safari and then when you click the bookmark it opens it in iCab. You may be able to do this in other browsers such as atomic but I have only got iCab. Check out this blog to see how to do it:

    I forgot all about that! And, I've used that method successfully in the past, even...

    Sorry for steering y'all wrong. My bad...

    Thanks all. Yes, I found a bookmarklet that will allow me to make it work for the atomic browser. Unfortunately, in my case it's a catch-22. Due to security concerns ... I typically disable JavaScript in Safari. For sites that require it ... I open the page in Atomic. The problem with the bookmarklet is ... Its a javascript ... Hence will not run within Safari if JavaScript is disabled .

    Oh well. Any ideas?
