Your web browsers and mail clients need to handle
"x-scheme-handler/http"[1] and "x-scheme-handler/mailto" respectively to
be listed in the GNOME default applications in the new control-center.

Once our default applications are setup, I'll make the necessary changes
in shared-mime-info for the applications to be picked up.


for details.

[1]: And probably x-scheme-handler/https
