This is an awesome snippet! Now here is your dumb question. Where exactly do you expand this snippet in order to activate it?
It doesn't actually expand any text. You just type your abbreviation while you're browsing (no need to have an active text field or anything), and the AppleScript in the snippet executes. No text is inserted upon completion.
slightly tweaked to open in new tab rather than new window
and added comment to use it as a launchbar action
Great addition, prenagha!
If anyone is looking for a way to do exactly the opposite (open currently active Chrome tab with Safari), here's an adapted version of the script to do that: https://gist.github.com/4401082
