Description Jason Bacon 2008-01-31 01:00:04 UTC
Bestbrowser is a simple script that finds and runs the best available browser
on the host.  It allows applications (such as math/lensnns) that use HTML 
or other browser-based docs to function without requiring a specific browser 
to be installed.  It contains a default list of browsers, which can be 
overridden via the environment or the command line.

I'll take it.

I feel this portname is misleading, not to mention the ensuing browser war it 
could generate.

I would like to propose a different name, such as choosebrowser.
