What Izar said. Also, here's a snippet from logjam's spawn.c that shows
how to do it with other browsers. The Opera line isn't correct though.

char *spawn_commands[] = {
    "mozilla -remote 'openURL(%s, new-window)' || mozilla %s",
    "gnome-moz-remote --newwin %s",
    "galeon %s",
    "netscape -remote 'openURL(%s, new-window)' || netscape %s",
    "opera -remote 'openURL(%s,new-window)' || opera %s", /* note no space */
