       git-web--browse - git helper script to launch a web browser

       git web--browse [OPTIONS] URL/FILE ...

       This script tries, as much as possible, to display the URLs and FILEs that are passed as arguments, as HTML
       pages in new tabs on an already opened web browser.

       The following browsers (or commands) are currently supported:

       ?   firefox (this is the default under X Window when not using KDE)

       ?   iceweasel

       ?   seamonkey

       ?   iceape

       ?   chromium (also supported as chromium-browser)

       ?   google-chrome (also supported as chrome)

       ?   konqueror (this is the default under KDE, see Note about konqueror below)

       ?   opera

       ?   w3m (this is the default outside graphical environments)

       ?   elinks

       ?   links

       ?   lynx

       ?   dillo

       ?   open (this is the default under Mac OS X GUI)

       ?   start (this is the default under MinGW)

       Custom commands may also be specified.

       -b <browser>, --browser=<browser>
           Use the specified browser. It must be in the list of supported browsers.

       -t <browser>, --tool=<browser>
           Same as above.

       -c <conf.var>, --config=<conf.var>
           CONF.VAR is looked up in the git config files. If it's set, then its value specifies the browser that
           should be used.

   CONF.VAR (from -c option) and web.browser
       The web browser can be specified using a configuration variable passed with the -c (or --config) command line
       option, or the web.browser configuration variable if the former is not used.

       You can explicitly provide a full path to your preferred browser by setting the configuration variable
       browser.<tool>.path. For example, you can configure the absolute path to firefox by setting
       browser.firefox.path. Otherwise, git web--browse assumes the tool is available in PATH.

       When the browser, specified by options or configuration variables, is not among the supported ones, then the
       corresponding browser.<tool>.cmd configuration variable will be looked up. If this variable exists then git
       web--browse will treat the specified tool as a custom command and will use a shell eval to run the command with
       the URLs passed as arguments.

       When konqueror is specified by a command line option or a configuration variable, we launch kfmclient to try to
       open the HTML man page on an already opened konqueror in a new tab if possible.

       For consistency, we also try such a trick if browser.konqueror.path is set to something like
       A_PATH_TO/konqueror. That means we will try to launch A_PATH_TO/kfmclient instead.

       If you really want to use konqueror, then you can use something like the following:

                           browser = konq

                   [browser "konq"]
                           cmd = A_PATH_TO/konqueror

   Note about git-config --global
       Note that these configuration variables should probably be set using the --global flag, for example like this:

           $ git config --global web.browser firefox

       as they are probably more user specific than repository specific. See git-config(1) for more information about
