> Since this API is meant to simulate what happens when a link is clicked (I believe),
it should include this category. It's certainly a safer default:
> {quote}
>      * Activities that can be safely invoked from a browser must support this
>      * category.  For example, if the user is viewing a web page or an e-mail
>      * and clicks on a link in the text, the Intent generated execute that
>      * link will require the BROWSABLE category, so that only activities
>      * supporting this category will be considered as possible actions.  By
>      * supporting this category, you are promising that there is nothing
>      * damaging (without user intervention) that can happen by invoking any
>      * matching Intent.
> {quote}
> If apps want to fire an intent without CATEGORY_BROWSER, they should use a custom plugin.
