wouldn' it be a good idea to have system like "alternatives" handle this? so 
you could have a link like /usr/bin/www-browser (see Debian) that points to 
your favourite browser. And browser packages should deal with the link...

This way no application would have to bother which browser is actually 
installed. Of course, only packages with browsers supporting "browserbinary 
<URL>" calls should make use of this system.

just my 2¢
