Mac OS X 10.3 ships with Safari as the default web browser and Mail as the default mail client, but you are free to choose your own. The "default" program is the one used by the system whenever you click on something that launches a browser or email.

To change your default browser, launch Safari and go to the Preferences. In the General pane, there's a place to select your default browser from a list of installed browsers on your machine.

Likewise, to change your default mail client, launch Mail.app and go to the Preferences. You can select from a list of mail clients or choose one not on the list by clicking "Select...".

For versions of OS X prior to Panther (10.3.x), the default browser and mail preferences are set using the "Internet" pane in System Preferences.
