If you just want to see which one is the default, couldn't you just
open an HTML file in Windows/Explorer and see which browser is
Also, I think you can look at the file type associations. Using
Windows/Explorer, go to Tools -> Folder Options, then click on
file types and look for HTM and HTML files.
As far as getting SeaMonkey to be your default browser, I've heard
that you may have to trick the browsers to cooperate in your
decision by making IE the default, then running SeaMonkey and
telling it to become the default.
