Change Default Web Browser in Debian

You can change the Debian Sensible Browser in a pretty straightforward way using the command line. Open the terminal window and execute the following command in it (you’d have to be the root user for this to work.):

update-alternatives — config x-www-browser

This would bring-up a table of installed web browsers in your Debian system. The one with the asterisk sign (*) left-to-it is your current default web browser. To change the default web browser just press the selection number of that particular web browser and press the Enter key. It’d do the job.

Pretty slick, right?
