FWIW, I put Chrome in Areca's config file and it still didn't work. I 
even repointed the /usr/bin/firefox symlink to Chrome and it worked 
pretty much everywhere else, butnot in Areca: With /usr/bin/firefox 
symlinked to Chrome, nothing happens from Areca. Oh well, good thing 
I've read the help and don't refer to it much anymore.
