Possibly better - I use :

(defun rgr/browse (url)
  "If prefix is specified use the system default browser else use the 
configured emacs one"
  (if current-prefix-arg
      (when url (browse-url-default-browser url))
    (if  url (browse-url url) (call-interactively 'browse-url))

(defun rgr/browse-url (&optional url)
  "browse the url passed in"
  (setq url (or url (w3m-url-valid (w3m-anchor)) (browse-url-url-at-point) 
  (setq url (read-string (format "Url \"%s\" :" url) url nil url))
  (rgr/browse url))

(global-set-key (kbd "<f4>") 'rgr/browse-url)

Cursor on url. Hit f4 to open using your emacs browser (whatever that is
configured to) or C-u f4 to open in your desktop browser (firefox here).
