Python Language Webbrowser Module Opening a URL with Different Browsers


Example

The webbrowser module also supports different browsers using the register() and get() methods. The get method is used to create a browser controller using a specific executable's path and the register method is used to attach these executables to preset browser types for future use, commonly when multiple browser types are used.

import webbrowser
ff_path = webbrowser.get("C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/firefox.exe")
ff = webbrowser.get(ff_path)
ff.open("http://stackoverflow.com/")

Registering a browser type:

import webbrowser
ff_path = webbrowser.get("C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/firefox.exe")
ff = webbrowser.get(ff_path)
webbrowser.register('firefox', None, ff)
# Now to refer to use Firefox in the future you can use this
webbrowser.get('firefox').open("https://stackoverflow.com/")
