My default browser is chromium. Naufrago however annoyingly always opens links in Firefox.
You should either be able to select the browser to launch, or use system defaults (possibly through xdg-open)

    Hi there Bidossessi,
    First of all, thanks for reporting. This way we will be able to improve Naufrago!

    Due to an accident, I am currently & temporally disabled, but let me try to help you. I cannot access the sources right now (I am on a smartphone) but I guess I use Python's webbrowser.open to do the trick. As you can see on its documentation[1], there is a way of defining default browser/s via the $BROWSER environment variable for that call. Could you please try it for me and tell me if that works for you?

    Regards.
