Sending an Intent to browser to open specific URL

I'm just wondering how to fire up an Intent to the phone's browser to open an specific URL and display it.

Can someone please give me a hint?

Answer

To open a URL/website you do the following:

String url = "http://www.example.com";
Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
i.setData(Uri.parse(url));
startActivity(i);

Here's the documentation of Intent.ACTION_VIEW.
