I'd have thought that using an AppleScript should do it in most recent
systems - see the ApplScript filters from Staz..

The only problem that I see is if the user has fixed another browser as
standard over Netscape (like IE ou iCab - neat) using their Internet
preferences. In this case you'd have to send a command to launch the
user-chosen browser with the URL, instead of first launching Netscape.
