[Linux] Xfce set Chrome as default browser

So, you installed Google Chrome (not Chromium) on your machine and set it as default browser from its menu but even if it's the only installed browser, you see Xfce not using it as the default one:

exo-open --launch WebBrowser

asks you to specify the default browser instead of launching it, and if you set it, Chrome complains he's not the default every time you open it.

You may work around the issue by changing the preferred application for the browser:

gksu xfce4-settings-manager

and setting the default browser as:

/usr/bin/google-chrome "%s"

then ignoring Chrome's complaint.
