Hi all,

I'm wondering if there is a way to make a WebView to open a link with the system's default browser?

You need to set the web view's policy delegate, and then implement the webView:decidePolicyForNavigationAction:request:frame:decisionListener: method, something like this:

- (void)webView:(WebView *)sender
decidePolicyForNavigationAction:(NSDictionary *)actionInformation
request:(NSURLRequest *)request
frame:(WebFrame *)frame
decisionListener:(id <WebPolicyDecisionListener>)listener
[listener ignore];
[[NSWorkspace sharedWorkspace] openURL;[request URL]];

Edit: I can't get that code to format, but it should do what you need.
