    • getExternalBrowser

      public IWebBrowser getExternalBrowser() throws PartInitException
      Description copied from interface: IWorkbenchBrowserSupport
      Returns a shared instance of the external web browser. Clients can use it to share one external browser. The external browser that will be used is subject to browser support implementation. A suggested implementation is to use the operating system's default browser. Implementations that offer users a choice of the web browser should honour the users choice of external browser, with the initial selection being the system default browser.
