Is it possible to open a specific browser type i.e. Google chrome, Firefox, Chromium using the window.open() method? For instance, I have Google chrome, Firefox and chromium installed on my system and would like to specify which one to open depending on the circumstances. Occasionally , I would also like to open all the browsers simultaneously and compare between browser performance.
