You can create a projector that opens the browser using the FSCommand with the command parameter Exec and the argument parameter being the browser application name; however, you must include the specific path to the application you're calling.

We specifically did not include the ability to pass multiple parameters in the FSCommand(exec) because of the ability to do unsafe things such as erasing drives, etc. A resourceful person could create a batch file or Applescript to get around this.

There's a sample of this on the shipping CD in the Goodies:FSCommand folder (the stuff that DIDN'T get installed on your hard drive).
