Defining Web Browsers in #Eclipse on Mac OSX

It may seem a bit counter-intuitive, but since Mac OSX is based on BSD, you open programs (including web browsers) like you do on other UNIX derivatives. In Preferences, under General, you will find Web Browsers. Add a new browser. Name it anything you like. Put /usr/bin/open into the Location. And, put -a AppName.app %URL% into Parameters (substitute your browser’s real name for AppName like Google Chrome.app).If you find this helpful, please let me know.
