Complicated kinda...

if DISPLAY is set
  if we can find an X browser
    run it
  else
    if we can find an xterm/rxvt/whatever
      if we can find a console browser
        run the xterm with the console browser
      else
        return an error
      endif
    endif
  endif
else
  unset use_screen
  if STY and WINDOW are set
    set use_screen to '/usr/bin/screen ' or something
  endif
  if we can find a console browser
    run it (preceeded by the value of use_screen)
  else
    return an error
  endif
endif
