Basically I'm trying to block any applications to randomly being able to open urls with my default browser.

I've looked up windows default apps by protocol in control panel, but I wish there was an option where it would warn me before opening letting the app open a url.

Best answer for me would be a way to tell windows, hey prompt me before openning my browser! unless its opened by me.

I do have some programming skills, I'm not afraid of coding if step should include any.



Try Browser Chooser. It will ask you about a desired browser before opening a URL and allow to cancel the launch.
