You can't change the default browser as it has been built in with the assumption people wouldn't be spending time on making alternative browsers (that are based on IE anyway) in the market place. The closest you can come to this is to developer unlock your phone and find something that is similar to this application, but I doubt if that exists...

If you have an Unlocked Windows Phone , I will strongly suggest you to try the Windows Phone Hacker Tweaks which brings in lot of customization including what you need.

The tool you suggest is cool. But it doesn't allow me change default browser. It only open opportunity to set Google as main search engine. This is not exactly I need. – Alexander Zonov May 29 '12 at 3:35
I saw around unlocking windows phone and make conclusion that unlocking is possible only if I have full developer registration with annual paymen Am I right or not? – Alexander Zonov May 29 '12 at 3:40
