@xibz can you give more detail on what you are seeing?

Pprof visualizations each have external dependencie(s) so we'd like to make sure this is something wrong with Go as opposed to your local installation of one the visualization dependencies.

@meirf - I can't give much more than instead of a browser popping up, gimp does. Is there any specific information you guys are looking for that may help debug this?

See this comment here: #11729 (comment)

On a side note: "web" seems a misnomer for the current implementation. It uses xdg-open on Linux and at least on some systems xdg-open doesn't launch a browser but gimp to view the svg.

I recommend asking more about this on go nuts since this seems somewhat expected and has been around for a while. Thought one oddity is that comment says this happens on linux whereas you claim to be using mac osx.

Ah, figured out the issue. pprof uses macs /usr/bin/open command so it will use whatever default it opens too. I recently uninstalled my default browser for another and it made the default gimp. Sorry for the noise. Cheers.
