    Question getting the default browser+MIME data

    hi all
    I want to ask : how to get the current system default browser by java code at runtime (IE,firefox,...)? and how to get its specific version ? also how to get the supported MIME type of that browser also by java code?

    this is intended to be part of a network agent by java.
    thanks

    Hey Waleed,

    Welcome to the Java Forums.

    In older versions of Java you used to be able to use:

    Java Code:
    Systems.getProperty("browser");
    Systems.getProperty("browser.version");
    Systems.getProperty("browser.vendor");
    But in the new versions of Java, this has been removed for security reasons.

    Because of this I am no longer sure how to get the browser information you require. I will have a look around and see what I can find...
    Did this post help you? Please me! :cool:
