I don't know whether `alternatives-define' or `define-alternatives',
but something without "dispatch" in its name.

If the command name is `browse-web' then the user option
`browse-web-alternatives' could define alternatives for this command.

This is like what the command `browse-url' already provides
where you can customize `browse-url-browser-function'.

But it seems that there is a need for two separate commands
`browse-url' and `browse-web' where `browse-url' is used to visit
a link from the buffer in a preferably external browser,
and `browse-web' to start browsing the Web in a native Emacs browser.
