You can edit the settings by going to Preferences -> Package Settings -> Bang Search -> Settings - User

Browser configuration

The lib used to open a new tab is webbrowser.py. Only the first element of browsers_list will be used, the others are here to allow quick change in your configuration file. The “default” value refer to the None settings in webbrowser.py corresponding to the default browser.

THE FOLLOWING CONFIGURATION IS AT YOUR OWN RISK, let “default” if you have any doubt.

Identify already defined browsers by webbrowser.py

Open a console : View > Show console

And enter the following code to identify which browser you can use :

import webbrowser; print(webbrowser._browsers)

Register a browser in webbrowser.py

Open a console : View > Show console

And enter the following code to register a browser. Here is a sample for windows, you have to define an alias and the correct path to the choosed browser.

import webbrowser; webbrowser.register('google-chrome', None, webbrowser.BackgroundBrowser("C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Google\\Chrome\\Application\\chrome.exe"))

Choose the browser for Bang-Search

In the bangsearch.sublime-settings, place your _default browser in first place in the list.

"browsers_list": ["firefox","default","google-chrome"],
