Changing default browser in Mac OS X

by Josh K   Last Updated October 06, 2018 13:01 PM

I currently have Firefox set to be my default browser. I would like to change it to Cruz because if Firefox isn't currently open it takes almost a minute to load. Plus it's rather sluggish at times.

How do I change the default browser?

Easiest way is to use Safari's preferences, this will let you change it to any browser on the system (not just Safari)

System Preferences -> General -> Default web browser

...or ⌘ space and start typing Default web browser. Glad it's now decoupled from Safari.
