How can I detect which browser is installed on a machine?  I want to launch a browser from a CD-ROM game and send it a URL to go to.  How can this be done?

To find out which browser(s) are installed, use the PBDTGetAPPL function and look for the creator of the browsers (MOSS for Netscape, MSIE for IExplorer, dogz for CyberDog), then launch it, then get a Process ID, then send it an appleEvent (using OSACompile)

Good luck !
