Install the fish shell
Authored by: gunnmjk on Aug 23, '08 02:40:01AM
After installing the fish shell, you will definitely want to look at the documentation for it. In order to do so, the default BROWSER needs to be set. Run this line in the terminal to do so.
echo set BROWSER \'open\' >> ~/.config/fish/config.fish
Once this is done, restart the shell and type 'help'

Can you expound on what \'open\' means in this context? Entering echo $BROWSER at the prompt outputs "open" rather than the path to the default browser. I'm assuming "open" in the quoted line is different than the OS X open command.

This worked for me after installing fish with 'brew install fish'

set BROWSER \'open\' >> /usr/local/share/fish/config.fish
