Setting up Your Web Browser
By Petr on Oct 01, 2008
This tip explains how to set up different web browsers to view a project or a page. Other web browser configurations are helpful if you want to view a page in Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari or any other browser than the default system one. It can also help you when you need to test your applications with different versions of a browser.
After installation or when running the IDE with a fresh userdir, NetBeans uses the default system browser. When you invoke Run or Debug on a PHP project that uses Local Web Site or Remote Web Site Run Configuration, a browser is launched and the project URL is displayed in the browser. Run and Debug Single File actions work in a similar way for individual PHP or HTML files.
You can change or add a new browser configuration in the Option dialog.
In the Web Browser combobox you can select from predefined configurations. When you press the Edit... button, you can change the existing configurations or you can simply add a new one.
