I'm currently developing a Google Reader Notifier for linux (check it out at http://grnotify.sf.net if you're interested), and need to be able to open the users default webbrowser and login to google reader automatically.
I currently do this using the webbrowser module, and then using the command webbrowser.open("http://google.com/reader").
But this just sends the user to the google reader homepage, and doesn't log them in. I would like to know how I can open the user's default webbrowser and send him to a site with post parameters? Or is there any other way to login to google reader, thus without using post parameters?
