    Is there a way to set default open program based on what app your launching something from?

    For example, if I click on a link in my email app, I would like it to open with the default browser. But if I click on a link in say, my tumblr app, I would like it to open with a different browser.

    Any good solution for such a thing?

    Find the stock browser in settings>applications>manage applications and clear the defaults. Do the same for the other browser you want to use.

    Now when you click a link there will be a pop-up asking you which browser you want to use. There will be a check box that you can check to make whichever browser you choose the default browser for that particular action. The pop-up box will come up whenever you click a web link within any application until you set a default browser for that action.

    Hope that helps and it's not too confusing.

    yeah, I know what your talking about, I was hoping to keep the defaults set, but for that be able to launch a different browser just once in a while.

    I developed an application just for that:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=pt.joaormf.openwith

    You it share, select this application and you can open the link with any other installed browser.
