Is it possible to change the application being used to quick look a certain file extension in Mac OS. (I'm using Mountain Lion).

For example, right now the .properties file quick look is always showing as a black box (terminal-like icon with "exec" text). How can I change this quick look to show the file content instead, using some kind of text editor.



This is possile via QuickLook plugins, namely QLStephen. You can download and install this pluing from http://whomwah.github.com/qlstephen/.
