Considering the code already there, and Fred's comments, it looked like
that was the idea.

Something to take into account is that unlike other operating systems,
in unix-like systems the browser preference is really spread, so it
looks like a good idea to support "well-known" browsers.  For example,
I'd like to see Opera supported (I've heard it even has some Windows
audience out there).

I don't have a strong feeling about it, though. I'll accept peacefully
whatever is decided. :-)
