     This checks the registry to see if certain popular browsers are installed on the machine. If so, it creates registry entries for future reference and lists them in the menu. Just choose the HTML file you want and choose the browser you want to preview the file in. This is simialiar to how Macromedia's DreamWeaver UltraDev 4 retrieves and stores the browsers in the registry. This is great for authors of HTML/CSS/DHTML editors who want to support multiple browser previewing. Tested in WinXP Pro, WinME, Win98 SE, and Win95. Should work in WinNT 4+. Looks for the following Browser types: Netscape (Communicator, 6 (en), and 7), Amaya, Opera, and IE. You can even manually input browsers such as Lynx. **Note** This is an update to my previous submissions.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
