C#: Open webpage in browser from windows control
I have seen many articles explaining how to open a webpage via an ASP.NET web control but I need to know how to open a webpage from a Windows Form Control.
Does anyone know what control class or command is used to do this?

Most that I've seen, would just launch the system command "iexplore <website>" It won't open the website in the browser of choice, but why would anything use anything other than IE?

And how do you do that? I cant see iexplore anywhere.

You should be able to do
System.Diagnostics.Process proc = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
proc.StartInfo.Application = "iexplore";
proc.StartInfo.Arguments = "www.google.com";
<note> untested, i'm running CompactFramework currently which doesn't allow for System.Diagnostics and i'm too lazy to load up full framework currently.

Apparently there is no such object "Application" under proc.StartInfo

Then google it it's been almost a year since i've worked in full framework, ya gotta do your own research sometimes.
