Changing the Default Web Browser

Question: How do I change the default browser for Web links?

The IT Guy says:
In Windows XP, there are several ways to do this. If you want another program other than Internet Explorer to serve as the default Web browser, generally this will be set upon installing the alternative browser. If you want to change the default Web browser back to IE, opening IE will by default provide a prompt asking if you want IE set as the default Web browser. If you do not see that prompt, in IE choose Tools – Internet Options, then click the Programs tab. Make sure the checkbox at the bottom of the menu that reads “Internet Explorer should check to see if it is the default browser†is checked.

In Macintosh OS X, change the default Web browser by using Safari preferences. In Safari, choose the Safari menu and then Preferences. In the General tab, select your preferred default Web browser from the popup menu.
