Go For It! Change it on your PC... That's only a destination for the output creatde in WebFOCUS... Keep in mind that the results may vary for your users if they're using other browsers.

I switched to Chrome about a month ago and haven't had any problems opening WebFocus reports with it (but we don't do HTML reports). Runs great.

You can change your default browser in control panel -> add or remove programs -> set program access & defaults

Also remember that Developer Studio is hard wired to use IE. Changing your default browser won't make Developer studio open a report in Chrome - it will still use IE.

Cheers

Stu, what happens if we've banished IE from our computers? Are you saying that if we want to use any version of Developer Studio, we MUST have IE installed?

Francis,

That's absolutely correct.

All past and current versions of DevStudio require IE.

However things may change in the future as I believe there is a project to remove the dependancy.
Possibly in version 8.

It's actually a much bigger issue in Europe as Microsoft has been forced by the European Union
to unbundle IE and a number of other features from it's operating systems.

Interesting information of Microsoft's reaction to the European Commission's ruling on default web browser for Windows:

Engadget: Microsoft giving Europeans with Windows XP and Vista choice of browser
