Look no further and get yourself Choose Wisely, which allows you to do all this.

After installing Choose Wisely, make it your default web browser. Now, when you click links in any other programs (such as, your email client), Choose Wisely will open a pop-up window, providing you the option to select a specific browser in which you want to open the link in. This tiny application is very useful and a boon for those users who are into web development and wants to test their work or for them who don’t want a single browser as their default browser.

Almost every user now-a-days likes to keep installed the major browsers like Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, Internet Explorer, etc. on their computers. The reason for this is the different choices and features that you get from these browsers.

So, if you are trying to open a saved page or an application launches a link, it will open up in the default browser, no matter if you wanted it to open in a different browser.

If you’re a web developer, and you need to test your site in several different browsers, having a quick way to switch between them is even more useful. Even if you are a general user and switches browsers according to the needs will like to have the flexibility of changing the browser instead of only opening the default browser.
