Fixed Open in Chrome Alfred Workflow

I use Andrew Curtis-Black’s “Open in Chrome” Alfred workflow whenever I need to view a page that uses Flash. After installing Parallels to run Windows on my Mac 1, the workflow began misbehaving. It would start Parallels, then open Chrome in Windows, which is certainly not what I wanted to happen.

I took a hint from this script and fixed the problem today. Search for the applescript “open_in_chrome.scpt”, then change the line

tell application "Google Chrome"

to

tell application id "com.google.chrome"

and all is fixed.


  1. I know, I feel dirty. Believe me, it was only so I could run some essential Army forms software. [return]
