although named EIGHT - Firefox start page, this deviation by ~flatmo1 is completely browser- and/or platform-independent. you use chrome, safari, opera, IE, konqueror (to name just a few) on whatever version of windows, linux or mac? don't worry. it just works flawlessly.

it is a nice, elegant, customizable and windows8 inspired start page alternative that is just waiting to be used by you.

Is there a way to set a link to open in another browser? 
I found this but cant get it to integrate into the Eight page 

e.g. - I use IE but want a link to open in chrome or firefox as the page renders incorrectly
