My mail client is configured to open links in mails with Chrome. But sometimes, when I get a mail from our ticket system, which doesn't work at all on Chrome, I'd like to open the link with internet explorer.
You could setup a custom protocol handler on your system.
For example, you could use a protocol in your html like this:
<a href="sd:http://www.example.com/">I get opened in IE</a>
Then you register sd as a protocol, and tell Windows to open those kind of links with IE
Registering an Application to a URL Protocol
Looks like it passes in the protocol part, so IE wouldn't know what to do with that. You could write a very simple batch file to strip the protocol part, and then launch IE.
Here is an example batch file:
@echo off set a=%1 start "" "c:\program files (x86)\internet explorer\iexplore.exe" %a:~3%
It creates a variable "a" that it sets to the first parameter "%1" then its starts iexplore, stripping off the first 3 characters of "a"
Not sure how helpful it will be, but the chrome extension tutorial page might contain something useful.
