Let me rephrase a previous Q --

When some program tries to show a URL, it invokes
your "default browser". How does it know what your
default browser is and where is that set?

Is it a symlink somewhere in your home directory,
or a text file with the browser name in it? Or what?

not knowing what desktop you are using and knowing that it may be
completely home-grown, in kde/plasma5 you set it with systemsettings5 -->
applications --> default applications --> web browser

in xfce it is something similar but not systemsettings5.

But maybe it can be queried somehow across desktops. :-?
