How can I Access the internet from inside Excel vba code

I'd like a button click on my spreadsheet to take the user to my website (www.mywebsite.com). How can I find out which browser the user has installed on his Windows computer and then what commands would I use to call that browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox) and link to my website?

There is a lot of ways to do this with VBA and Internet Explorer, including having a mini webbrowser inside your excel.

Other wise the way you do it is

Application.FollowHyperlink strURL

Open in new window
