Why can’t the Gmail notifier launch the Chrome browser?

Google’s Gmail Notifier system tray application for Windows can’t launch Google Chrome when it’s not setup as your system default browser.  Uh, hello?  Both of these are Google applications, you think they would have updated the notifier to support this by now.  As you can see here from my screen shots the Gmail Notifier options show every other browser I have installed EXCEPT Google Chrome.

There must be some way to hack this.  I even made sure that I had the latest version of the notifier and I do.  Anybody have any idea on how to accomplish this?

  1. I’ll check it out on Monday. Kind of disappointed to see that you have to pay for it…
