    This is probably not possible (at the moment), but I was wondering if there's a way to set things up so that if I click on a link in, say, Outlook in my Parallels VM it will open the site in my OS X default browser.

    If it's not possible now, I think this would be doable with an addition to Parallels Tools. Tools could register a component of itself in Windows as the default browser, when in actuality that component passes the link through to OS X and makes the request there.

    Its possible, but I don't think we'll see it soon.

    Why don't you make a request on the Parallels forums?

    Sounds like a new, but simple to implement Parallels Tool. Make that the default browser and it'll pass the URL on to Safari or Firefox on OS X.
