Register your own URL protocol scheme
LinCastor enables you to register your own custom URL protocol scheme (e.g. mylink://foo/bar) and associate it with an application, shell or AppleScript handler.
As most OS X application support embedding links as part of a text, a custom URL protocol scheme provides a great way to connect different applications together or trigger custom workflows. For example: a link jira://issue1234 could open a JIRA tracker with specific issue. This link could then be placed in iCal’s reminder or any other text fields supporting links.
Open a link with specific browser
Another use is to associate well knows URL schemes with specific application. For example: firefox-http://www.mysite.net could open http://www.mysite.net in the Firefox instead of the default browser. Or chrome-https://mail.google.com in the Chrome.
