'Webrowse,' 'inbrowse' and 'go' are tools that facilitate interfaces between a Netscape web browser and other componenets of a Unix desktop, such as the command line, the X11 cut buffer, editors, mail readers, etc. Browse any source of text, HTML, files, URLs, pieces of URLs, simple search and lookup specifications, etc., including automatic markup of implicit URLs and paths in the text. 'Inbrowse' is a frontend to webrowse that reads the standard input and guesses the appropriate way to browse it. 'Go' is a convenience frontend to webrowse that usually lets you give simple, abbreviated commands to open a website or perform various web searches and lookups.
