ok I already know how to open a new internet explorer window point @ a website in vb.net this way:

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("IExplore", "http://www.website.com")

this only opens IE (of course) is there a way to have the system open their default web browser? like Netscape or Firefox?

The next question is how do you start a NEW browser instance? If IE is already open and you're enjoying your favorite web page, then run this code (Process.Start(MyURL)) IE will use the existing process and the next thing you know, you've lost your reading material! :)
