Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 58029
implement BROWSER env. variable
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:24:57 EDT
I came across a proposal at the supplied URL to implement a BROWSER
environment variable similar in style to $PAGER or $EDITOR.
This seems like a sensible way or standardizing things (particularly on a
system-wide basis, rather than individual settings for GNOME, KDE, and
other applications), and I have not noticed it in Red Hat Linux.
I hope you will consider implementing this, and making necessary changes
to ensure that $BROWSER is invoked rather than hard-coding lynx or
Netscape (I doubt there's many hard-coded references, but haven't looked).
We currently use htmlview.
