Hi, is there a way to configure Markdown Monster to have clicks on links in the Html Preview open in the default browser? Right now links either open inline in the previewer or in IE (I have Chrome as my default).

Unfortunately not as the browser is essentially Internet Explorer. External links open (ie. with at target tag) open in full Internet Explorer because of that - behavior is the same as if you were running in IE in the first place.

I suppose it's possible to make this happen by intercepting the BeforeNavigate event and then shoving those links into a ShellExecute() call if there's a target on the link (otherwise pass it through). The target will be lost though - requests sent to the same target will then always open a new browser window (with Windows 10 crappy extension/moniker mapping that always seems to reset)

Why don't you post an Issue on the Github Issues Site as a Enhancement Request to make it official. I can take a look - to be honest I wouldn't mind this behavior myself, 'cause you know, who the heck uses Internet Explorer voluntarily ??

Just saw your reply, and that you have already implemented the changes. Thank you!
