Getting rid of escape characters in text

I’ve exracted the name of my default browser from Launch Services and used text item delimiters to isolate it to this: “camino\”. How do I get rid of the escaped back slash?

try this: The echo is going to ignore the ""'s - so you don’t even need to do anything fancy to get rid of them

set x to "camino\\"
do shell script "echo " & x

Thanks - it works, but I found that getting a word did the same thing.
