[New-bugs-announce] [issue44059] Support SerenityOS Browser in webbrowser module

Linus Groh report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Linus Groh <mail at linusgroh.de>:

SerenityOS [1] maintains its own port of Python (currently 3.9.5) [2], with increasingly fewer custom patches. It has its own webbrowser (called "Browser") [3][4], which is the only browser installed by default - as a result, webbrowser.open() currently does not work out of the box. However, register()'ing the browser was straightforward [5]. The goal of this issue is to get that patch into upstream Python.
