Default Opening internet shortcut with Tasker

Is there a way to create a task that will open an internet (Dolphin) shortcut? I was thinking " open file " but not sure if there were a way to make that work.

auto-shortcut will do that (it can do a whole lot more also):
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joaomgcd.autoshortcut

Step 1:
First you need to create a "bookmark" or "shortcut" to the page.
You can create bookmark with the stock browser.
There are a number of application that can create a shortcut to a page also.

Step 2
Then in Tasker, select Task / Plugin / Autshortcut.
Press the Edit button in autoshortcut configuration, then select "bookmark" or "shortcut" and navigate to select the bookmark or item you just set up in step 1.

Oh yeah... forgot about the built in browse url.
That's easier for this purpose. Glad you figured it out.

Still I'm glad you recommended this plugin. I'm using it now to configure shortcut commands for utter! and it's been great. Thanks again.
