    Why shouldn't they? Don't be so negative to programs you don't need. Some will find this an easier way to change rather than zipping through their browsers.

    my question was: "why does anyone need a "program" to change default browser ?"
    is that "being negative" ?
    and what does "zipping through their browsers" mean ?
    donīt you know how to set the default browser yourself ?

    I know very well how to set any browser as default, but not everyone dose so this kind of program can help them.

    Just because you can't comprehend why this would be useful to someone, doesn't mean it shouldn't exist. Do you question why a garage would have sockets to take bolts off when you could use a wrench. They both do the same thing, although one of them makes the job a lot quicker and easier.

    Lets say you are developing and debugging a website using Visual Studio. When you run the debugger it opens the website in the default browser. If you want to keep testing on different browsers, navigating to each one to set it as the default would get old very quickly. The reason I'm here now is because I was searching for this exact tool.
