A possible feature for the browser setup, is to have
RSS viewer use the system default browser.
Keep the customisable option but have a check box to
use the system default.
rundll32 url.dll,FileProtocolHandler http://www.domain.com
For Unix.. If netscape is present
netscape -remote openURL(http://www.domain.com)
Mac is a little more involved..
There is some info on the subject
and also a BrowserLauncher Class done by "Eric Albert"
Of course this will introduce platform specific code,
but uses the exec() command which is still pure Java.
It would add a little in ability to run from the word
go with less configuring.
Also for a mozilla user like myself, the use of this
code opens up the url in the current browser window
rather than opening up a whole new browser window. Much
better for tabbed browsers and also keeps down the
number of opened windows for non tabbed browsers.
