New feature: Add ability to specify preferred browser

Community Member

I use 1P mostly on Mac. At the login item level, along with username and password, I'd like to be able to set the preferred browser. For example, for a given login item, I might set "Google Chrome" as the preferred browser. Then, when I click "open and fill" on that login item, 1P would open Google Chrome and fill the required fields. If I have not specified a specific browser for a login item, then 1P would open the item in my default browser.

I, and perhaps others, would find this useful because I use multiple browsers. Some sites work better in Safari than in Chrome, others work better in Chrome, an so on. Thank you for considering this request.

1Password Version: 8.7.3
Extension Version: 2.3.7
OS Version: 12.4
Browser:_ Safari 15.5

    Hi there,

    I have the same requirement.
    My situation is that I have several companies and I use different browsers for different companies.
    I would love to see that when I open a login from 1Password, the configured browser was used to pen that login in.
    If the browser isn't open yet, then the browser should be started.

    I work only on a Mac
