When android app launch default browser - it may be started only for simple resolving url (if some shortener was used). For example, where you click on 'youtube' url in twitter - it opens browser, browser loads last opened page, open new tab, load url, detects it url may be handled by installed application, launch that app and close opened tab.
Now, with Re|Director it can be handled much faster - Re|Director catches 'browser launch' request, resolve url, and launch appropriate application immediately. Or lauch browser.
Optionally - Re|Director can extract content and show article itself - with built-in html reader (similar to Readability).
And more - Re|Director can determine application, who asks to 'launch browser', and call preconfigured non-default browser, or show 'Open with...' dialog.
when Android show Open With Dialog after Click on URL - select 'Re|Director' and press 'Always'
(this action are required for Re|Director works)
Preffered Browser - Browser, Used as Fallback for JustRead - in cases, when Re|Director could not parse article content

There, first item are 'Default Handler' - applied to all unknown applications

note: You may check 'Remember selection' in 'Open With' dialog, and Re|Director remember that selection as default For Application
JustRead - Re|Director open Article in built-in reader
