Subscribing to Sherlock3 channels in Mozilla Web Browsers
RealBasic Garage has set up a Sherlock 3 channel, but I had a dickens trying to subscribe to it using Mozilla. Then I remembered an earlier hint, and a variation on it does the trick:
  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. Go to Preferences, then Network, then Protocol Helpers.
  3. Add Helper for "sherlock" without the quotes.
  4. Choose Sherlock as the Helper application.
  5. (Re)start Mozilla.
Now you can click on the Sherlock3 link to subscribe the RealBasic Garage (and other channels as they arrive).

Hate to comment on my own hint, but...

Where are the other Sherlock 3 channels out there? Apple doesn't even have docs explaining how to make a new channel anymore if you wanted to--this page has them commented out in the source. Legal trouble with Karelia? Revision pending? Anyone have any news?

modify Internet helper apps without explorer

For those of you who don't want to use Explorer, there are a couple of easy alternative ways to assign helper apps for Mozilla or any other web browser:

The above site has two free apps, one is a pref pane, one is standalone.
