Browsers/Applications

You can define an unlimited number of alternative browsers or applications for launching database entries. You must supply a descriptive name for each browser, as well as the full path to its EXE file. In addition, you can specify the startup folder, initial state of the application window, and whether to display the entry in the launch menu.

The browser or application should be able to take a URL parameter and launch that URL in a new window. If you supply a %1 parameter in the EXE path (eg. "C:/Program Files/MyBrowser/MyBrowser.exe" -newwin "%1"), the %1 parameter will be substituted with the URL to be launched. Otherwise, the URL will be directly appended to the EXE path.

You can also click on the Auto-Detect Web Browsers button to automatically detect all web browsers installed on the current system. You will be given a choice to either append all the browsers detected to the existing list, or replace the existing list with the detected items. The browsers currently recognized are Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Mozilla, Firefox and Opera.
