Make it easy to change default browser in MSVS

Currently is it a pain to change the currently default browser, you've to use File->Browse With... and the a few more clicks to select the browser, "Set As Default" button, etc. Moreover, if you're working with a ASP.NET MVC flavor project, this command will be disabled, thus making it even harder to change the default browser...

You can read more about this suggestion here from Scott Hanselman:

and here from the WoVS blog:

IF YOU WOULD LIKE MICROSOFT to add such a feature in the next version of Visual Studio PLEASE VOTE HERE!!

But until Microsoft provides this feature inbuilt we can use a Free Tool named "WoVS Default Browser Switcher".

You can download this tool from here.
