    Hello,

    How can I get iMail to launch something other than Safari when I click on a link in an email?

    Thanks,

    J.

    What is your default web browser?

    Safari, but there is no way to create an exception to this?
    I like Safari for certain things, but Safari seems to be a huge resource hog (at least on my machine), and I'd like to open mail links (which are usually videos) in a browser that isn't such a slug.

    I'm assuming you are going to tell me that there is no workaround and that the default browser cannot be circumvented by any iMail settings, correct?

    Correct. Clicking a link in Mail will launch whatever browser you've set as your default.

    If you're having problems with Flash content on websites:
