Opening url in favorite browser

June 15, 2011 | 1:02 pm

I am looking for a way to open a url in the user’s favorite browser. I want to do this from a built application regardless of platform (Win or Mac). Is there an easy way to do this besides using a jitter command (namely ;
jitter launch_browser http://www.url.com)?

I figured it out! Any idea though how to prevent a browser window from launching on top of an old one? I want it to replace the old one in the same window. Might be a safari setting but don’t seem to find it
