>From the Tramp 2.1.8 manual:

"TRAMP has an EXPERIMENTAL implementation for running processes on a
 remote host.  This allows to exploit GNU Emacs packages without
 modification for remote file names.  [...] Remote processes are
 started when a corresponding command is executed from a buffer
 belonging to a remote file or directory."

It is implemented as proof of the concept. Looks to me like the
current implementation doesn't perform as it should, because there are
too many cases where processes are executed remotely which shouldn't.

For the time being, I've added browse-url-* functions to the list of
exceptions (running processes always locally). Committed to CVS.
