This isn't entirely correct (but isn't entirely wrong either).

NSWorkspace -openURL: checks whether the given argument is a file, and
if it is, tries to open it (or notifies the appropriate application to
open it). If it is a url, it returns NO.

In this case, the example services should kick in, which try to launch
'mozilla', which isn't necessarily installed. However, the example
services will check whether 'NSWebBrowser' is set and use the specified
web browser instead of 'mozilla'.

In most cases this should work fine, though I'm not entirely convinced
that this is the way it should be implemented.
