      Description

      Hello,

      I have a problem where Mozilla 1.7 on my Windows 2000 computer doesn't seem to work. I am sure that
      this is a problem for a significant number of people. It would be nice if
      org.jdesktop.jdic.browser.Browser would detect this, and fall-back to using the native (IE in this case)
      browser instead of leaving the user with an empty box.

      Nicer yet would be for other platforms to fall-back to at least an HTML JTextPane if they do not have a
      native browser.

      Thank You!

        This is a reasonable request. Currently, On Windows, if Mozilla is not set as
        the default browser, we'll just fall back to IE. But we didn't check if Mozilla
        is set as the default browser but it fails to be embedded, and if IE still fails
        to be embedded, it won't fall back to other default Java or native HTML viewer.
        On *nix platform, it won't fall back to any other viewers.

        Submitted patch to this would be very welcome !
