Is there a way to determine what program handles html links depending on which program the link was clicked in?

For example, if the link is in an outlook message, I want to it to open in IE since that's what my company codes sites for. Anything else should be open with Chrome.

Not by default. What you'd need to have is a program that intercepted all http/https/htm/html/etc. requests, looked at its parent process, then use that information to pass the call off to the actual web browser.

I'm not aware of any such program.

That's what I was afraid of... Maybe I'll write such a program.... – Matt May 4 '10 at 23:03
