Default [Q] Certain Applications for Certain things?

Hey, is there a way of app that will make some apps not viable for certain things. For example, if you have 2 browsers, everytime u click a link, it will say "Chrome, Youtube" and then you have to chance to press Always. but then it pops up again... is there like a way to make Chrome not be viable for opening youtube links or something? Thanks for your help!

If you select Always, it is supposed to never show you the selection box again unless you reset app preferences or perhaps download a new option. Only thing I could think to try is reset app preferences and try it again.

Any app that you previously clicked "always use this app", can be reset, and next time you click a link, it will ask you what app you want to use....can he done by going to system settings, apps, all, find the app that's currently the default, click it....and click "clear defaults".
