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

7 Each platform ({@link nl.nikhef.jgridstart.install.BrowsersWindows Windows},
8 {@link nl.nikhef.jgridstart.install.BrowsersMacOSX Mac OS X} and
9 {@link nl.nikhef.jgridstart.install.BrowsersUnix Unix/Linux})
10 has its own method of running the web
11 browsers, of detecting which browsers are installed, and of discovering which
12 is the system default. All platforms share a list of known browsers, however,
13 which is defined in {@code browsers.properties}. Generally, only these
14 browsers can be invoked.

16 For client-side SSL authentication, it may be needed to install a certificate
17 and corresponding private key into the browser. This is done by the method
18 {@link nl.nikhef.jgridstart.install.IBrowsers#installPKCS12}, which expects a
19 <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PKCS12">PKCS#12</a> file to import from.
20 After this, you can use
21 {@link nl.nikhef.jgridstart.install.IBrowsers#openUrl} to open a HTTPS page.
