WARNING: This software is obsolete, and was last tested under Windows XP in 2005. You should not run this software on modern Windows computers. The software is posted here for historical / research purposes.

A very simple program that lets you set the default web browser in Windows. Select the browser you want, and the program will modify the required registry settings. Can now also automatically locate the browser. A valuable tool for anybody who uses more than one web browser on their system (e.g. if you switch between Netscape Navigator/Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Opera and others).

Because this software is very old, it does not recognize recent web browsers and is unlikely to work on modern systems. The author recommends that you DO NOT try using this software.
