This suggests you aren't running on the same Mac OS X that I'm
running on <grin>.

I specifically recall that doing:


worked for me last night, when I had my iBook running the
latest OS X at hand.  It opened up Internet Explorer, the
default browser on that system, on Google.

                          I won't rest till it's the best ...
