Updating iphone from another computer
In Lin Castor (which you need to double-click twice to fully open for editing): on handle_url(args) if (|URL| of args starts with "https://mail.google.") then tell application "Google Chrome" open location |URL| of args end tell else if (|URL| of args starts with " then tell application "Firefox" open location |URL| of args end tell else tell application "Safari" open location |URL| of args end tell end return 1 end Obviously you should customize the code to suite your own specific needs.
You can validate the script right in Lin Castor before saving/activating it.
Recently, I was trying to get a Java applet to run in the same way on 2 i Macs and my Mac Book Air.
The applet is a simple vpn client from Juniper that lets me access a Citrix Desktop from any Mac that I can install the Citrix receiver client on so I can work on 'Company stuff' from a large screen i Mac when I'm sat at home or from my Mac Book when I'm on the road (it works fine over 3/4G).
The first thing is that you have to do some configuring of both Java and Safari to get the applet to run at all.
Once that was all done, I could log in from all my Macs, fire up the applet and establish a secure connection. I made sure that the Safari and Java preferences were set the same on each machine but still no joy.
I wonder if something is going on at Apple's end, where the Siri processing gets done.
I'm not sure why that works; it shouldn't, but it does.
[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described. I tried it in 10.10 beta 2, and it also worked there.
There's not much documentation for it, so tinker around a bit to get the result you want.] I'm writing a detailed set of instructions for getting VPN 'on-demand' working with i OS 7.
Web applets still use the up to date, secure version 1.7 plugin.
[crarko adds: I believe Oracle has said that eventually Java will no longer support applets at all, on any platform.] A few weeks ago, a number of people started reporting having trouble with Siri.
