How can I direct revGoURL to a specific browser?

Another option is to use the shell command:

put quote & c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe & quote
into tBrowser
put "http://www.mini-itx.com" into urltoget
get shell(merge("[[tBrowser]] [[urltoget]]"))

The only thing i'm unsure of is if IE is always in the same location.
I also can't test at the moment, no windows access right now.
