I noticed RuneScape opens using Internet Explorer, why can't I set it to open with Firefox or Opera?

RuneScape uses the Internet Explorer control shdocvw.dll to load RuneScape in. That control is ideal for what we need, and works just the way we want it to. Unfortunately the control for Firefox is not up to par and lacks what the IE control provides. Unless Mozilla releases a better control, that Firefox switch is not going to happen.

If Mozilla has released a newer control and you believe we can implement it, please contact us.

I highly recommend making it availible to automatically recognize what browser us users are using to make the experience better. :)

I run Google Chrome, and I can't open SwiftKit without the 'Error 339 LaVolpeAlphaImg.ocx' thing coming up. I'm not making IE my default browser, mine is just too damn slow. Will Google Chrome work?
