IC-Switch 1.1

IC-Switch is a freeware (Cocoa) helper utility for Internet Config (for Mac OS X only). It allows you to change your default emailer, Web browser or news reader in one click, from an editable menu displayed in all applications.

This is equivalent to doing it from the Internet pane of the System Preferences application, but much faster: you don't have to launch System Prefs nor to enter your password. Also, IC-Switch allows to select the helper for news groups, which the Internet pane no longer does, and changes the helper for https (secure http) along with the one for http (Web).

IC-Switch was primarily aimed at developers and testers, but it's also useful to anyone who likes or needs to often switch Internet applications.

Changes in 1.1:
Japanese localization was added, thanks to Yuzuru Shiraiwa.
IC-Switch now displays icons in its menu, showing at the first level the selected helper for each protocol.
It's now possible to get IC-Switch to search automatically for helpers from the preferences window, by clicking on a button or by typing cmd-F.
Reveal helpers in Finder from the preferences window, and from the menu (by selecting a helper with the option [alt] key pressed).
Launch a helper from the menu, by selecting it with the ctrl key pressed.
All the commands available in the preferences window now have a corresponding menu item and key equivalent.
The preferences window now remembers the last tab you used.
The option to launch IC-Switch at startup has been improved. Now if you enable/disable IC-Switch startup launching from the login pane of the system preferences, IC-Switch will detect it.
Better behavior when the user selects an application already referenced, or an application that has the same creator as an application already referenced.
Memory handling was improved.
Help and readme files were updated.
