There is a lot of cruft accumulated in browse-url.el mostly for old browsers
with different handling of command line arguments for "new-window-is-tab" logic.
But it seems nowadays only three options should be sufficient:

- use the default browser found by browse-url-default-browser;
- or use Emacs browser eww;
- or allow to specify a browser program name with additional arguments.
