    It would be nice if, when specifying user-definable browsers, to have something on the "View" menu *other* than "External Browser 1", "External Browser 2", etc. A couple alternatives:

    * Have the browser name in the "View" menu be the basename of the pathname of the browser, i.e. if "/usr/bin/opera" is the pathname of "Browser 1", what appears in the "View" menu is "opera".

    * In the Browsers tab of the Preferences dialog, have a text field for Browsers 1, 2, and 3 where one can specify their names, i.e. when a user sets the pathname of Browser 1 to /usr/bin/opera, one can type "Opera" in a text field labeled "Name:", so that one would see "Opera" in the "View" menu instead of "External Browser 1".

    I like the second alternative better.

      Never mind. I'll add this to the RFE tracker.
