I'm afraid ThunderHawk does not support this at the time, as he always starts with *the same* homepage: So, whenever you'll start it, the same page appears.

To set another default browser you should edit a registry key: "HKCR\http\Shell\Open\Command". It has a 'Default' value set to "iexplore %1". This means that whenever you tap a http link, iexplore tries to open it as a command line parameter.
You can change this to ""\Program Files\ThunderHawkII\thawk.exe" %1" (or the path to your browser) but seems that thawk does not support command line parameter also.

Thanks nonubik. I am going to suggest to bitstream that they add this feature.

I just had an idea, if I can't launch ThunderHawk directly, would there be a way to copy the clicked link to the clip board so I could paste it in thunderhawk?

I don't think so. Here's what the ThunderHawk support team answered:

"Thank you for your interest in our Thunderhawk technology.

The ThunderHawk homepage is not an editable option at this time.

ThunderHawk will not support a command line parameter to open or
  a desired page.

We have forwarded your request to our development team for review and
possible inclusion in a future release of the ThunderHawk browser.

We have added your e-mail address to the list to be notified if this
feature is added to ThunderHawk.
