USe the ShellExecute API Call

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

Private Const WS_MAXIMIZE = &H1000000


Then use like

Private Sub Command1_Click()
ShellExecute(Form1.hWnd,"Open","http://www.experts-exchange.com","","",WS_MAXIMIZE)
End Sub

This opens the specified URL in your default Web Browser
