Hot Default Browser Action

Much as I enjoy running Xubuntu on my Eee PC 701, it can sometimes take me bloody ages to work out how to do something simple. Just so I don’t forget, here’s one of many ways to set a default web browser:

sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser

The fact that I needed to do this in order to open URLs in Firefox with urlview from inside mutt is worrying–I think I might be going native.
