There is no way to open a URL with the Browser from within an app

Bug Description

If I've got an app that wants to send a URL to the browser and get the browser to open it, there seems to be no way to do this.

A workaround would be calling the browser with the URL as argument, but it's currently not possible

The right way to do it is through, but it doesn't work either.
