Trying to find out a way to programmatically find all the installed browser, I came across this question on SO which points at the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet.

I have installed Google Chrome, Waterfox and of course IE, but the registry does not list Waterfox. Does anyone know if this is intentional or installation error?

> reg  query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet
    (Default)    REG_SZ    IEXPLORE.EXE

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\Google Chrome
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\IEXPLORE.EXE

> dir /b "c:\Program Files\Waterfox\waterfox.exe"
waterfox.exe

Maybe you should contact Waterfox's developers and ask if Waterfox registers itself with the system as a browser. –  BenjiWiebe Feb 15 '13 at 2:01
