Alfred Hat Tips

The one in which you assign global hotkey to open website(s)

With the new 0.9 feature - Global Hotkeys - you can assign system-wide shortcuts to your apps, files or scripts. One potential use is then having a hotkey that opens a set of your most-used websites.

In the example below, I’ll set a script to satisfy my morning newspaper reading.

Open up AppleScript Editor and copy in the following (substituting with your own selection of websites):

open location “http://www.nytimes.com/”

open location “http://news.bbc.co.uk”

open location “http://www.cnn.com”

Save the script, then open up Alfred Preferences > Features > Global Hotkeys, click to add new and enter the full path to the script that you’ve just created.

Now you’ll have these accessible with just a single global hotkey! :)
