Python webbrowser.open() to open Chrome browser

Python webbrowser.open() to open Chrome browser

You can call get() with the path to Chrome. Below is an example – replace chrome_path with the correct path for your platform.

import webbrowser

url = http://docs.python.org/

# MacOS
chrome_path = open -a /Applications/Google Chrome.app %s

# Windows
# chrome_path = C:/Program Files (x86)/Google/Chrome/Application/chrome.exe %s

# Linux
# chrome_path = /usr/bin/google-chrome %s

webbrowser.get(chrome_path).open(url)

In the case of Windows, the path uses a UNIX-style path, so make the backslash into forward slashes.

webbrowser.get(C:/Program Files (x86)/Google/Chrome/Application/chrome.exe %s).open(http://google.com)

See: Python: generic webbrowser.get().open() for chrome.exe does not work
