Instead of ImageJ's Platform interface having an open(URL) method to open a link in the default browser, we could lean on Java 6's Desktop#browse(URI) method. It purports to do exactly that, and more. We would just need to: A) verify that it works on all supported platforms; and B) commit to Java 6 as a minimum version (we have essentially already done this, but Retrotranslator would definitely not be able to provide support for Desktop#browse).
