It doesn't bother looking at the default browser, it just launches the
system browser directly.

See the class Algertype, #openInExistingBrowser: or #openInNewBrowser: to
see why, but it looks like it'd need a bit of work to work with the OB
Browsers correctly which from a few minutes of trying, don't seem to be
quite compatible with the old browsers.  Maybe someone who knows OB better
could offer a quick solution.

It expects #open to return an instance of the browser which it passes to
three subclasses to react accordingly to class, category, and method
opening.  OB's #open doesn't seem to return the browser instance, nor do the
instances respond to the same messages Algern expects to use to set the
current class, category, or method.
