1. Add a button in your layout file with:

android:onClick="onOpenWebBrowser"

Open in new window


2. Import the following packages:

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

Open in new window


3. Add the following code:

    //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"));

    	try { 
    	    startActivity(webPageIntent);
    	} catch (ActivityNotFoundException ex) { 
    	    // do something about the exception 
    	}
    }

Open in new window
