Step 3 : List of your programs including the all internet browsers should be now displayed on the left side of the screen. Select browser which you want to be your default (in my case it is Opera just for example) and then press "Set this program as default". Now that browser should be your default and always opening all things related with the internet files.

IMPORTANT : Sometimes after setting up your default internet browser, in the future it will not only open happen to open internet files but also and other stuffs such as .pdf documents or even some music-video extensions. In that case you can always change your settings for each type of extension by going back at Set Default Programs menu and then after selecting default browser program clicking on "Choose defaults for this program". Screen with the extensions will appear and from there you can check the ones that will be opened by your browser as a default.
