import sublime, sublime_plugin

class OpenBrowserCommand(sublime_plugin.TextCommand):
def run(self,edit,keyPressed):
url = self.view.file_name()
if keyPressed == "1":
navegator = webbrowser.get("open -a /Applications/Safari.app %s")
if keyPressed == "2":
navegator = webbrowser.get("open -a /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app %s")
if keyPressed == "3":
navegator = webbrowser.get("open -a /Applications/Firefox.app %s")
if keyPressed == "4":
navegator = webbrowser.get("open -a /Applications/Opera.app %s")
navegator.open_new(url)

This is a simple way to assign "view in browser" commands for a number of browsers.

Add the key bindings above to your keymap (Sublime Text 2 > Preferences > Key Bindings - User), then create a "viewInBrowser" file and save it in Sublime Text 2 > Packages > User. Modify and or add/delete browsers as per your workflow.

This looks like it will only work with OS X. Is that right?

For people new to Sublime it might be worth noting that the file needs to have the ".py" suffix for this to work. The docs say the file name doesn't matter so I just used "OpenBrowser.py" to be more consistent. Thanks for the little plug-in. :D
