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

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

DESCRIPTION
       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:

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

       o   iceweasel

       o   seamonkey

       o   iceape

       o   chromium (also supported as chromium-browser)

       o   google-chrome (also supported as chrome)

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

       o   opera

       o   w3m (this is	the default outside graphical environments)

       o   elinks

       o   links

       o   lynx

       o   dillo

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

       o   start (this is the default under MinGW)

       o   cygstart (this is the default under Cygwin)

       o   xdg-open

       Custom commands may also	be specified.

OPTIONS
       -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.

CONFIGURATION VARIABLES
   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.

   browser.<tool>.path
       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.

   browser.<tool>.cmd
       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.

NOTE ABOUT KONQUEROR
       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:

		   [web]
			   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	this.
