Not quite as hoped Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I'd only really use this for opening one FF tab in Chrome. For some reason, I thought this would open Chrome if it wasn't already opened, but it doesn't. It only seems to work unless you have Chrome already open. That defeats the object for me as I rarely have the two browsers open at the same time.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on ( 

The addon simply triggers the default behavior for your machine when the Chrome program is called with a URL as an argument, same as if you were to drag-and-drop a URL on the browser's icon or call the program directly with a URL argument from the command line. Nothing fancy, advanced nor exotic in other words. For a freshly installed machine running OSX, Windows XP/7 or Ubuntu the default behaviors on those platforms is to launch Chrome if the browser isn't already running and for Chrome then to show the page(s) you wanted to migrate to said browser. If Chrome otoh. was already running, only new tabs for the migrated pages would be opened (Google's default behavior), with the caveat mentioned on the addon's front page and also in the accompanying release notes. ______________________________________________________________________________________________

If the above isn't the behavior you're experiencing, then I'd wager something is off with your OS / chrome configuration, or perhaps some anti-virus program on your system is interferring. You can verify if the expected behavior is encountered or not by having Chrome closed and then on a command line (Terminal/Shell or Console) issue: [ chrome "<a URL>" ], such as [ '%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe "" ] if using Windows 7. Please follow the support site link, activate the tracing described in that page and post the trace output on that page as well. There I will try to help you figure out why the addon isn't working as expected on your machine.
