wham, wham... snap out of it!!!! what the hell r u doing?
simple... in kfm. goto Edit->Global Mime Types->text->html and then change the
bindings to whatever u want....
tho i dont remember... but netscape wont appear in the list of applications that u
can choose from by default...
so u go to Edit->Global Appilications and create a new one. then come back here
and select netscape...
happy kde'ing
