Open a specific web page?

Can you make a button that when clicked opens a specific web page?
http://www.scirra.com/ for example.

I looked at HTML and HTTP objects but none of them seem to do what I am looking for.

[quote="Davioware":2nighhl0]file object: execute file (url)[/quote:2nighhl0]

Is there a generic exe for all browsers? Say I use Mozilla (and I do), Ashley uses Chrome, and linkman2004 uses explorer (that scoundrel). What exe do I call to get the browser up for everyone and how to you make it go to my special web page?

Thanks

Man, that's ancient history. :P I've been using Chrome since it came out back in '08.

Anyways, what davio meant is for you to use the URL in the "Execute file" action of the file object. That will automatically open the specified URL in the user's default browser, no need to specify any browser.
