(Not strictly online but I couldn't find a General Coding sort of section to put this question in)

What's the platform-independent way to launch the system's browser on a page?

...but don't forget that under Unix these days lots of people won't be touching netscape with a barge-pole. I would guess that more people used mozilla.

Of course, any recent netscape is just a modified mozilla anyway, but moz isn't going to install itself with a binary named "netscape" in normal circumstances.

malloc will be first against the wall when the revolution comes...

Arse. I knew there'd be a catch. Still, 99% of the people who download my demo are going to be hapless Windoze users, and will happily eat any shit they are given.

wait a second...

what does Java Web Start do when handling links? They do have clickable http://... labels!

Anyhow, try http://browserlauncher.sourceforge.net written by Eric Albert. It supports many more platforms than Unix/Win and works on my system so far.
