Listen up everyone. If you've been having this 'IE sticking' problem, regardless of whether you really wanted OmniWeb, Chimera, Netscape, Mozilla or whatever,


I figured the problem wasn't rooted deep in the system (English.lproj -> DefaultHelperApps.plist). Why? because at first i only had the problem when i tried to make Netscape the default - Chimera stuck just fine. And then, for no apparent reason, it happened to Chimera as well.

These steps are extremely easy for any moron (like me) to handle, and most importantly it really does work this time!!!!!!


oh, and for those who might be interested to know, Apple has just updated their website with their own FAVICON!

BTW, the very first thing I did after installing OS X.2 was to totally delete all references to IE, and of course IE itself. I am using this iBook because I do not want any association with M$ whatsoever. There is not one file in my system with a MS name on it. No problems!!! To put it very very mildly, I hate MS. I wouldn't use word if my life depended on it. I'm a purist! I have been in the FreeBSD camp since 1985. The only problems I have ever had with any system had their origins in Micro$lop ware, directly, or indirectly concerning security.
