xdg-settings get default-web-browser

Hi @adrian_sev,

AFAIK, ROOT should use the default browser, no @linev? Aleternatively, as per the root --help output, ROOT allows to specify an alternative web browser, as in:

$ root --web=chromium



Only in current ROOT master it is possible to clearly specify use of default web browser:

root --web=default

Actually, it will be default setting with the next ROOT version.

For ROOT 6.26 one can use workaround:

root --web=xdg-open

Means ROOT will try to use xdg-open <widget-url> command to show web widget.
Not nice, but should work for all kinds of interactive web widgets.
