When starting a profile, it always seems to start my ASP.NET MVC application in IE if it is installed on the system, despite the fact that this is not the default browser. Is there a way to specify which browser to launch it in?

Hello,

I would be hesitant to label this as a Yes-or-no question because there is nothing stopping you from using any browser you want -- but you do need IE installed to profile a website with ANTS Performance Profiler. Launching Internet Explorer is always done by Profiler because it hooks into the quit event to be signalled that profiling has stopped. Other browsers have a different API for this, if they have components at all, so only IE is supported.

However, you can always copy the contents of the IE address bar and paste the address into a new instance of Firefox, Chrome, or whichever browser you use, minimize the instance of IE, and close IE when profiling is completed.
