Opening web pages from the command line

I spend a lot of time in a CMD window.  I mean a lot of time.  Often I’d like to open a web page, but opening up Internet Explorer and navigating my way to the page in question is such a chore.  I’m lazy.  I don’t like mouse-clicks.  Enter the quicky batch file.

    traffic.cmd – This checks my local traffic conditions (thanks to the excellent folks at the WSDOT)


    weather.cmd – This tells me the current conditions in my area

You get the idea…
