on GNOME systems the gconf key /desktop/gnome/applications/browser/exec
is present but I don't know who use it (nor if it is used). Preferred
Applications capplet sets the default web browser choosen by the user
in /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/command. So on GNOME systems this is
the gconf key to look at to know the default web browser.
