Hi! I'm somewhat new to Macs and accidentally set Camino to the default browser. How do you change the defaults?

find a file that you want to set the default app for, in this case a .html file, then in the finder do a get info on that file, hit the button to change the default app for that file, then hit the change all button.

I did "Get Info" on Safari, but I didn't see anything for making it the default app.

No no, I said do a get info on a .html file in the finder, not in safari. Maybe you should describe the problem you're having in more detail.

Basically, I want to set Safari as the default web browser.

Dude, if you want help you need to put more effort into it. We don't get paid for this, it's a community thing. I said describe the problem.

No worries mate. If ever you want to change it to something else, you'll still have to do it through Safari. It's a bit of a strange OSX quirk. :)
