Offline Google Drive without changing default browser

Google Drive supports offline access of your documents by running the little Google Drive sync tool. When you click on something, the Drive tool acts like a local web server and opens your default browser. However, this will only work if Chrome is your default browser. What if you want to use something else? I found this old script googledrivesync-chrome which appears to do the trick for Windows. Download the zip file, copy the files to C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Drive, and run “googledrivesync-chrome.wsf /install”. I just tried it on Windows 10 and it seems to work.
