I want a different default browser setting for tiled WinRT apps than I do for app in the legacy desktop environment. Is this possible?
I'm playing with windows 8, and one thing I've noticed is that by default the metro/winRT apps respect my choice of Chrome as my default browser. That's probably a good thing for the default, out of the box behavior for Windows, and it's definitely what I want for normal desktop apps.
However, I've found this doesn't hold up for metro/WinRT/tiled/modern UI apps. I think the transition between the desktop and metro sections of Windows is a jarring user experience. I want to minimize this, and so I'd like to keep WinRT apps entirely in the the WinRT modern UI world, including when opening internet links. Instead of opening in my default browser, I want them to use the metro IE10 (or eventually metro Chrome or Firefox). This only holds for the RT apps. Desktop apps should continue to respect the traditional default browser setting. Can this be done?
One browser that supports different personalities/operating modes depending on the source would be an acceptable compromise.
