It Opens Stuff

That is, in your desktop environment. This will make actual windows pop up, with stuff in them:

npm install opener -g

opener http://google.com
opener ./my-file.txt
opener firefox
opener npm run lint

Also if you want to use it programmatically you can do that too:

var opener = require("opener");

opener("http://google.com");
opener("./my-file.txt");
opener("firefox");
opener("npm run lint");

Use It for Good

Like opening the user's browser with a test harness in your package's test script:

{
    "scripts": {
        "test": "opener ./test/runner.html"
    },
    "devDependencies": {
        "opener": "*"
    }
}

Why

Because Windows has start, Macs have open, and *nix has xdg-open. At least according to some guy on StackOverflow. And I like things that work on all three. Like Node.js. And Opener.
