Is there a command which would bring up the default browser and display a given URL and which would work on most unix systems?
For example, on windows you would do:
Currently, on unix, I'm doing:
"netscape -remote openURL(http://www.google.com/
)" and if that returns a non-zero value, I do:
This however has several problems:
1. It only works if the user has netscape.
2. If netscape if not your preferred browser, it annoys the user.
3. If netscape *is* already open, it just shows the page without bringing it to front (as reported by some users, I haven't witnessed it myself)
