#14970 new bug

No alternative preferred apps for HTTP/HTTPS URL mime type

Description

This is hrev52301, 32bit.

In the FileTypes preferences there's only WebPositive as possible "preferred app" to handle application/x-vnd.Be.URL.http and application/x-vnd.Be.URL.https.
There should be alternatives for other installed browsers, like Otter-Browser, NetSurf, QupZilla. They all have those MIME types as their supported types in their BEOS:FILE_TYPES attribute.

The MIME type application/x-vnd.Be.URL.ftp only shows "urlwrapper" as preferred app, even though all other browsers have that listed as supported file type.

It does work for application/xhtml+xml, however: all installed browsers show up as possible preferred app.

Have you confirmed those browsers actually claim to support said protocols?

Yep, as I said, "They all have those MIME types as their supported types in their BEOS:FILE_TYPES attribute". :)
