These are all quaint hangovers from Unix, and are pretty useless in practice. If you have
a URL, ShellExecute of the URL will launch the user-selected default browser. You could
use CreateProcess, but then you have to figure out what browser the user has configured.
This is stored somewhere in the Registry, but I don't know where.
