RCDefaultApp 2.0 lets you choose your preferred helper application for each of the main Internet protocols (Web, e-mail, newsgroups, and TP) and for each URL protocol—from AFP (Apple Filing Protocol) to WHOIS and everything in between (such as HTTP, HTTPS, MS, and SSH). The utility’s MIME Types settings let you choose the default application for each kind of MIME content—such as the Windows Media videos and PNG images you encounter on the Web. RCDefaultApp also lets you choose the application that should be used to open files with particular file-name extensions and file types. Unlike similar utilities, RCDefaultApp lets you disable types of files or protocols (such as URL schemes that pose security risks), providing you with a one-stop solution for customizing default application preferences.
