Uninstalled Chrome, installed Firefox, but it is not default browser

I have unistalled Chrome through the Software Center and installed Firefox. But Firefox is not a default browser. I think it would be good if the Software Center could set default browsers automatically during installation.

Its better to make the default choice thru the browser in most cases to avoid issues.  Even Chrome and Firefox dont install themselves as default without asking first.

I think most browsers (the ones I have used anyway) ask on first start if you want them to be default and usually give you the option to test on each start up.

Dai is correct as all browsers Ive used(and thats quite a few) are that way.
