Chrome as default internet browser in ACT 2012

Is there any way to change the default web-browser in ACT 2012 from IE to Chrome? If not, does ACT 2013 have this ability?

 

Chrome is so much faster and reliable for me. I also like the cross platform bookmarks and browsing history I get with Chrome. Sage needs to allow this, along with allowing us to change default search engine and map search providers.

 

Thanks

There is no option for changing the default browser. This applies to 2012 and 2013.

A bit of clarification:
Within the Web Info tab, ACT! uses a pared down version of IE. If you click Open Browser, it will open IE.

You are correct, if you click on a web site in the detail area, it will open your default browser.

I am thinking of dropping Act! after 15 years. This is another brick 9n th wall.
