How would you open a new browser tab (url) from a command in Theia terminal?

[original thread by jvsoares]

@vince-fugnitto yeah! that requirement is very similar to what I would need too, which is to open an arbitrary URL, for now I will try to work around by using the link matching that works in terminal
