in reply to Is there a system command in Linux

Every Linux distribution seems to have its own idea about the concept of a default browser. There's htmlview, which I found in old RedHat distributions (Is this still available? I don't have any RedHat systems to test anymore), Debian with their /etc/alternatives concept and so on.

Some wisdom about starting a web browser in a portable way is collected in this module.

    htmlview is still available on Fedora 7, but it's only a generic wrapper to find the installed web browser.

    The alternatives system is available in RH systems, too.
