Safari & Helper Applications - Mac Applications & Software

How does one set helper applications in Safari? It's not in Safari Preferences, and it's not in System Prefs -> Internet. -- Sally Context: The eMusic service ($10/mo for their whole catalog) requires that you use their "Download Manager". To do so, the browser must know what to do with files of extension .emp, fileType eMPk, Creator eMDL.

    OS X introduced a lot of great features, and intuitive "no configuration required" helper app assignment would be one of them if it worked all the time. Apple just assumed that it would be good enough for everyone's needs, and therefore doesn't give access to it. In comes Alexander Clauss, developer of iCab, with the essential utility MisFox, which is a simple front-end to the helper app prefs.

    here's the link: http://www.clauss-net.de/misfox/misfox.sit

    Simply set up the prefs like you would from within the browser, and all should be well. :)

    I've used a free utility called "More Internet" to do this. Seems to
    work pretty well.
