    I'm looking to set Opera as my default web browser instead of Safari and trying to figure out how to do that. The Mac version onlike in Windows doesn't give a popup box asking if I want to set it as my default browser when opening it. I also didn't see a specific option under advanced preferences for Opera either. Is there a simple setting somewhere in OS X that lets you change the default browser?

    It's in Safari preferences, in the "General" pane.
