Alfred Workflow to open Chrome's current tab in Firefox by using ff keyword. If Firefox is currently active then it works in reverse, i.e. it'll open Firefox's current tab in Chrome.

I use it in webdevelopment to check if a website is looking good in both Browsers.

Firechrome in Action

You can also use the keyword 'iff' to open the Chrome's current tab in Firefox's Private Browsing mode. If Firefox is your currently active window, it'll open a new Chrome window in Incognito mode.

Usage

  1. Open a URL in Chrome or Firefox
  2. Trigger Alfred (normally ⌥Space)
  3. Type ff (or iff for Incognito/Safe Browsing) and Enter.

Notes

You can also start typing Firechrome as a whole word if you struggle with memorizing the short keyword. Alfred should show it as a result which you can select.

If you don't like ff or iff as keywords, change them to what you like by double clicking the corresponding pane in Alfred's Workflow section. This applies to other keywords as well. Refer to the screenshot below.
