Bug Description

Binary package hint: xdg-utils

This is on Ubuntu 11.04. xdg-open seems to be ignoring the BROWSER enviroment variable. If i'm not wrong, is using gnome-open, and i cannot configure gnome-open to use w3m, which is the browser i want to use.

Wouldn't be best to honor the BROWSER variable? xdg-open should have a consistent behaviour and not change between desktops
