yes but it would help if u had 2 different browsers lol ... i have installed IE and Mozilla

When mozilla is default the value of

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\https\shell\open\command 
changes to
G:\PROGRA~1\FIREFOX.EXE -url "%1"

and when IE is default its

"D:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome

edit: forgot IE comes with windows LOL
