google chrome but email links open in safari

I like Google Chrome and use it over safari. I use Apple Mail and when I get links in Apple Mail, the open up in Safari. Is there someway to set it so that links can open up in Chrome or in a browser other than Safari?

I'm guessing it is an Apple restriction. So funny, years ago, everyone made a stink with Microsoft and how you couldn't change certain things with Internet Explorer and Apple does the same now. I'm guessing there is a System change I can make but it shouldn't be that way.

I just reckoned it was Apple 'forcing' Safari on you, too!!!

Annoying......but, in the Grand scheme of things, I'll live.......................

Resetting the default browser to Chrome in Safari (even though that is what it showed it was already set to) fixed the issue for me.

Open Safari
Open "Preferences..."
On the "General" tab set the "Default Web Browser" to "Safari"
Close Safari
Open Safari
Open "Preferences..."
On the "General" tab set the "Default Web Browser" to "Chrome" (or your choice)
Close Safari
Try your link again

I use chrome as well. I have the preference set in safari to use chrome as the default and links in Mail.app opens in chrome. Just tested it now to be sure.

It still hasn't worked for me. I'm probably going to use Chrome less anyway since its just 32 bit and Java won't work and there are some sites I need that need it. Unfortunately, Java for Mac is only 64 bit. No 32 bit plug ins.

Amazes me that Google won't make a 64 bit version of Chrome.
