To change the default browser in Visual Studio 2010 you can use the excellent World of VS Default Browser Switcher extension.

It adds a browser chooser toolbar (View –> Toolbars –> Default Browser Switcher) and ‘View In Browser’ options when .aspx files are right-clicked.

The Toolbar is especially useful for ASP.NET MVC projects as they don’t allow the standard ‘Browse with..’ right-click options

My current favourite Visual Studio theme is Brad Wilson’s Dark Visual Studio. It is not too gaudy, uses a nice font (Consolas) and is easy on the eye.
For pre-Vista/Win 7 PCs you need to install the Consolas Font Pack for Visual Studio from Microsoft.


Other Visual Studio themes can be downloaded (or designed) from the excellent website.
