Is it possible to make a browser such as chrome, safari, ie9, firefox, to select a certain output device?

Is your GPU running both monitors? You need two sound devices and, as mentioned above, software that can select a non-default sound device. I'm using JRiver Media Center and it works with any installed sound device on any monitor.

If your GPU is running both monitors you'll need another sound device (onboard sound would work but you'd need a line in to the monitor)

If your using the Mobo's integrated HDMI for the second monitor you should just be able to select it as the sound device in the application.

Most games can select a sound device but only go fullscreen to the primary monitor so your pretty much tied to having the GPU HDMI (windows default sound) for game sound and other apps on the non-default sound device.

I'm not aware of any browsers that can select a non-default sound device, I've not tried them all though.

I have DVI going to my dekstop LCD which has a set of speakers which uses the motherboards audio out. I've got the HDMI going to my TV which uses the HDMI for sound. The easiest solution I've found so I don't have to keep switching default output device back and forth was to use Media Player Classic or VLC which both have settings for default sound device.

Edit: I wish there was a way to switch audio easily in the mixer settings. It almost looks as if Windows 7 put that ability in there, but I have yet to find a way to select which audio device each app plays to.
