Open a Website from C#

It is often a requirement to open the default web browser and browse to a specific Url from a Windows Forms, WPF or even Console application. The easiest method I’ve discovered is to make use of the System.Diagnostics.Process class:

 using  System;
 using  System.Collections.Generic;
 using  System.Text;
 using  System.Diagnostics;
 namespace  OpenDefaultBrowser
     class  Program 
         static  void  Main(string [] args)
             Process .Start("" );

In most scenarios the code snippet listed above works without a problem. The only issue I foresee being in an environment where the user account used to execute your application not having sufficient permissions to execute the default browser application.
