Ubuntu uses file extensions to identify some types of files, but Nautilus attempts to detect the file type by reading the first few bytes contained in the file.

The Open With tab allows you to change the default application Nautilus uses or to add other options for opening the file. Just click the Add button, then either scroll through the list of installed applications or select the command textbox drop-down arrow and enter your own program.
