>From man 1 xdvi:

       -browser browser
              (.wwwBrowser) Defines the web browser used for handling
              external URLs. The value of this option or resource has
              the same syntax as the BROWSER environment variable; see
              the explanation of that variable in the section
              ‘ENVIRONMENT’ below for a detailed description.  If
              neither the option nor the X resource wwwBrowser is
              specified, the environment variables BROWSER and
              WWWBROWSER (in that order) are used to determine the
              browser command. If these are not set either, the
              following default value is used: netscape -raise -remote
              openURL(%s,new-window) :xterm -e lynx %s:xterm -e wget
