Make Safari default web browser?

I've had Firefox as the default web browser but how would I change it back to Safari? Safari has grown on me and seems to be much faster and less bloated. I can't find a setting in the Safari browser to make it do this.

Thanks in advance!

You set the default browser in Safari preferences, general pane.

Wow can't believe I never saw that, and I looked in the preferences many times!
Thanks

Thanks for the tip! I could have looked in the Preferences. But I know 99% of the time if I have a question, someone has already asked it. So I always hit Google.

I love this forum. It is really great for folks like me who spent their lives on PCs and have finally switched over.
