I didn't meant to add all existing browsers to the list, but only to
have "good" fallback.  My reasoning was then to add the default browsers
of the common setups, so Epiphany for GNOME, Midori for Xfce, Konqueror
for KDE (we have this one already), and Safari for MacOS -- OK I didn't
wanted to add Internet Explorer for Windows... :-'

IMHO a list with

chromium / chrome

is quite sensible, since it covers the most common user-chosen browsers
(first 3) and the most common default browsers (last 4, but maybe
Midori, I'm not sure).

OTOH, I don't really either mind nor find fallbacks that good anyway.
