I want to setup a timer. At the exact time, I will open IE or Netscape and goto a web site. After a period, I need close IE or Netscape. It's under Win98 or Unix system.

I have no idea how you do it under UNIX, but in windows, you could do:

Open:
ShellExecute(hWnd,"open","http://www.someurl.com",NULL,NULL,SW_SHOWNORMAL);

Close:

Send a WM_CLOSE message to the return of FindWindow("IEFRAME",NULL);
(this is IE, I don't know Netscape's class name).

Good luck!!

BTW, I have a Delphi component that can give you the clas name for Netscape's browser if you can use it. It is on my website:
