Question on default browser based on particular URLs

I couldn't get it to work until I clicked "Make Default Browser".  I thought that was to do with making Firefox, IE or Chrome my default browser.  Maybe that should be changed to "Activate Browser Chooser for links" or something.

But I like the idea of this app :)   Good job Jan.

My question is to do with a way to make certain URLs (let's say *.microsoft.com for example) always open Internet Explorer (or Chrome etc.).  I am using IE plug-ins in Firefox that help that but I there's certain URLs that I ALWAYS want opened up in IE, Chrome or Firefox.  Those URLs could be links in any open browser window or in my bookmarks -- Browser Chooser only works for links in emails and non-browser locations .  Is that something that Browser Chooser could be expanded to?  Or is there another way to do that?

Thanks

Good idea, I'll make it a little more obvious and also prompt the user if they didn't choose that option.
