I suppose you have a look the code of the webbrowser plug-in in The
GIMP (please make sure you understand the license notices in the
plug-in source). This little plug-in implements the same technique
that is used by the gnome-moz-remote utility. It searches an already
openend Netscape/Mozilla window and opens the given URL there or
starts a new one for you.

If you are using GNOME, consider to use the utilities they offer. IIRC,
there's a simple call to open an URL in the browser of users choice.

Salut, Sven
