Change default web browser?

Now that I've installed Opera Mini 5 beta, how do I make that the default browser? Opera 9.5 was terribly slow for everyday browsing. Thanks!

Thumbs up Re: Change default web browser?

I have the same problem too. I delete Opera 9.7, then IE became the default rather than Opera 9.5. I read the previous posts that I need to go to "preference" to set Opera 9.5 as default, but I don't see such option in either Opera 9.5 or Opera Mini 5 under the "setting" option.

In addition, I find Imagio's zoom bar won't work for Opera 9.7 or Opera Mini.

Anybody offer a hand to these two problems? I would be greatly appreciate it.

Re: Change default web browser?

i too removed opera 9.7, my machine lockedup each time i would use it.

to set the default browser you have to edit the registry as:

for Opera:
HKLM/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Shell/Rai/EFBROWSER
/0 Opera Browser
/1 "\Windows\OperaL.exe"

for IE:
/0 IExplore
/1 :MSPIE

There is a hack for Opera Mini here at XDA-Developers. This is an older thread so I'm guessing you would just substitute the old version of the program for the newer one.

Yeah it installs itself as the default. What version of 9.7 did you install?
