Browser-specific links to websites

Is it possible to specify which browser should be used to open a link to a web page on a per-link basis?

Use case: I am permanently signed in to my Goole account in Chrome, because I do all my Google Drive stuff in Chrome. I choose NOT to sign in to Google in Safari. Whenever I open a link to a Google Doc, I want to use Chrome, thereby bypassing the login step. At present, Hook opens the link in Safari, which forces me to login to Google in Safari, which I don’t want to do.

It would be great if I could specify which browser I want to use for each Hook link. Perhaps the browser from which the link was created should be the browser to open the link?

Any hints or suggestions would be appreciated. Or, consider this a feature request if browser-specific links to websites are not possible at present.

Thanks for listening!

Don’t know if this is possible with Hook natively, but I recently discovered this app called Choosy, and it is awesome. Literally all it does is let you be very specific with browser defaults. Best $10 ever spent!

Second vote for Choosy. I’ve been using it for years, and the Advanced options that it has it way better than anything else I’ve seen in other browsers that offer similar features.

I haven’t tried Choosy. Looking at the product description, it seems to solve the OP issue…
Given that you can paste URLs anywhere (i.e, not only in Hook) it seems to make sense to go for something like Choosy. After you’ve pasted a URL outside of Hook, unless it is a hook:// URL, Hook is not in the loop.
