Clarification Request
If you have several, do you have a favorite one?

There are two types of defaults. One is for which browser is launched when called for within some other program or by some file click. The other defaults will be settings within the browser such as the start page, how to handle history, etc. Which are you referring to? You can only set one browser as the default to use when a program wants to go to the web. You pick your favorite for that purpose. Most browsers have an internal setting to select it as the default but Windows has some default settings that might do that also.

Answer
Re: defaults

- What defaults?
- Why do you think you can't select another one if you want to change the one you chose originally (because it was wrong or because there's a better one)?
- How to do it depends on your OS (Mac, Linux, Windows 98?)
