2. Import the following packages:

import android.net.Uri;
import android.content.Intent;

Open in new window

    //Opens a web page when a button is clicked
    public void onOpenWebBrowser(View v)
    {
    	Intent webPageIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
    	webPageIntent.setData(Uri.parse("http://www.computeregghead.com"));
