More Internet

2.1.0
02 April 2006

Set helper apps for Internet protocols.

Overview

More Internet is a System Preferences pane that uses Internet Config to allow you to choose which applications are set as helpers for Internet protocols (i.e. which application will be chosen to handle which URL.)

Apple's own Internet Preference Pane only allows you to set Mail and Web applications - More Internet allows you to change (or add/remove) any of the Internet protocols.It performs the same function as the "protocol helpers" pane in Microsoft's Internet Explorer's preferences.

What's new in More Internet

Version 2.1.0
  • Universal Binary - now loads on Intel Macs.
  • Improved French Localisation. (Thanks to Sylvain Tutusaus)

You link is wrong, we are still downloading v1.2, which DOES NOT work on Intel Macs!

There is no "update". Version 1.2 is from 2006. Someone has screwed up.

Yes, sorry about that. I altered the download address and somehow the version number got changed. Apologies.

Sorry for the confusion, folks, the developer's info.plist file is full of contradictory version info. e.g. BundleVersion is specified as 123 ShortVersion is specified as 2.1.0 We were working off of the ShortVersion -- this should normally be 1.2, I'm not sure why the developer has it entered as 2.1.0 There is a mention of 1.2 in the info.plist, but rather than being a value that's specified as just "1.2" it's specified as "More Internet version v1.2" which goes against Apple's versioning guidelines. It's important for the version numbers on MU to reflect what version number value an app itself is reporting so MacUpdate Desktop and some of our other tools can properly work.

Try RCDefaultApp if More Internet is giving you problems.

More Internet version 1.1.1 doesn't work with 10.4.2 Tiger. Tried to set 'irc' handler and it doesn't change anything, it might as well not even be there, since it still tries to open in safari which says "Safari can't open “irc://...” because Mac OS X doesn't recognize Internet addresses starting with “irc:”.

Doesn't work for me. It says: "There was a problem setting the app as the helper." What problem? What ca I do?

Great! Works like it should, easy clean interface too. Please, only use it if you know what you're doing though. I'm using it on MacOS X 10.3.5, no crashing, unlike previous users reported.

Worked great under earlier OS X versions, but under 10.3 it causes System Preferences to crash on my Mac. Which isn't surprising since the developer hasn't updated this app in a long time. I recommend RCDefaultApp instead. It does everything More Internet does (minus the 10.3 crashing), as well as allowing you do explicitly *disable* URL schemes. And its developer is still maintaining it.

I've installed the Security Update, how do I toggle Help from Chess back to HelpViewer? I (and the Finder) can't find a "HelpViewer" per se.

Works well. I hate Apple's seemingly nasty idea of forcing you to use Safari and Mail to tell your System that you don't want to use them, if you know what I mean. Seems they are trying to learn from Microsoft who tried to force you to use IE.
