To make a default browser, Claude Charest  suggested
the following (at sunman mail list):

    cd /usr/dt/bin
    ln -s /where_is_the_new_browser_prg (ln -s
AND MODIFY sdtwebclient like this:
X> sun# diff sdtwebclient.orig sdtwebclient
X> 5c5
X> < DEFAULT_BROWSER_LIST="netscape mozilla
sun_netscape netscape6"
X> ---
X> > DEFAULT_BROWSER_LIST="firefox netscape mozilla
sun_netscape netscape6"
