Addons to use Chrome, Firefox, or other browsers
Currently, the Ares addons default to emulating IE 7. A registry key was added in version 4.4 to default it to now emulate IE 8 if it is installed on the workstation. Otherwise it will emulate IE 7.
There is currently no way to get the addons to use Chrome, Firefox, or other browsers.
IE is an obsolete browser and many websites don't work optimally in that browser. It would be best to be able to open links from the addons into the user's default browser.
