    Default Open in... Firefox addon?

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a Firefox extension that will allow me to open a given page in whatever browsers I want. There are plenty for IE, but I'm having trouble finding a swiss army knife version.

    I'm just looking for one plugin that will let me view pages in IE, Opera, and Safari from Firefox.

    Thanks!

    Oh, and sorry if this is the wrong forum to ask in.

    EDIT: After searching around some more, I found a random addon that let's you add "view page in..." for two browsers of your choice. I already had IE View, so this gets the job done.

    As far as a swiss army knife version, the closest thing I found was this guy's custom extension:

    IE Tab is better imo.

    Good luck!

    I love Dropbox. Get it through my girlfriend's referral link (I reached my limit) and both you and her get 500 MB extra! Thanks and you're welcome!

    The Firebug add on for FF allows you to configure editors. If you configure other browsers as editors, it will at least allow you to open local pages in them.

    This (Launchy 4.2.0) looks very promising:
