[XaraXtreme-dev] Executing Default Web Browser?

0.5 will include some help in plain HTML form. So we’ll need to add a Help option to Xara LX to throw up a web browser on the help intro page. And of course really we should have a link to xaralx.org in there somewhere now too.


Is there a standard way to find and invoke the preferred web browser that the user has configured, given that different distributions promote different browsers? Or do we do this the dumb way by Exec’ing on names like “Firefox”, “Mozilla”, etc. until we find one that works!
