I need to be able to show, in an HTML email, three different "a href" links. The first is working correctly <a href="https://...."> For the other two I need to give the user the option of open with Firefox or Chrome (because of the spell checking features). This happens inside our Lotus Notes email client and right click "open with" is not an option.

Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, at least to my knowledge, a link is fully controlled by two values or items. One being the default browser and the other being if the individual application has their own handle for links that are posted within the application. Now, to get multiple options on clicking a link would require a form of a script or a specialized shortcut or redirect for. Now I have seen some methods to getting I.E. as the selected browser, however this is due to the link controls of an application or shortcut pointing to Windows default browser.

How often do you send these out and do the links change often? You may be able to make a 'signature' or a macro to input embedded media (images perhaps) and have them launch a specific browser per image. I'll have to look into that more if it's possible, just let me know.
