um, i seem to remember hat in some version of geos the filemanager knew
how to handle .url or .lnk files that contained a url (url bookmark as
used by ie etc...) which is basically just a textfile in the form of

[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://www.beecy.net/frank/

Anyone remebers which versions support this? (I never got to launch the
browser from newbasic component so I think i just write a temporary .url
file and so I could finally release a 4 year old program that nowadays
makes sense and would be recognized for it's value... a rss/rdf viewer
:-) )...
