I'd like to change the web browser shown on the application launcher, from Firefox to Chrome.

This setting obviously differs from the default web browser known to the system because I already set Chrome as the default and it launches links instead of Firefox.

Locate Chrome In Applications → Internet, right click on it and select "Add launcher to panel".

Great! Likewise I was able to remove Firefox by right-clicking it on the launcher bar and choosing 'Remove'. Now if only the browser manufactures would code in awareness for the Ubuntu launcher bar/desktop environ to apply the default browser to the launcher automatically, then life would be good. –  John K Aug 13 '10 at 3:25
    
And here I've been dragging it to the panel all this time... Which works, just not as elegantly a this. –  jathanism Aug 13 '10 at 3:37
