3 Interface to web browsers installed on the system. This allows one to open an
4 URL in a web browser, and install certificates and keys into their
5 certificate stores.

7 Each platform ({@link BrowsersWindows Windows}, {@link BrowsersMacOSX Mac OS X}
8 and {@link BrowsersUnix Unix/Linux}) has its own method of running the web
9 browsers, of detecting which browsers are installed, and of discovering which
10 is the system default. All platforms share a list of known browsers, however,
11 which is defined in {@code browsers.properties}. Generally, only these
12 browsers can be invoked.
13 <p>
14 For client-side SSL authentication, it may be needed to install a certificate
15 and corresponding private key into the browser. This is done by the method
16 {@link IBrowsers#installPKCS12}, which expects a
17 <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PKCS12">PKCS#12</a> file to import from.
18 After this, you can use {@link IBrowsers#openUrl} to open a HTTPS page.
