Python Script to Open Webpages in Firefox tabs (or any browser supported by the python webbrowser library)

  #python  
import webbrowser  
a = ['http://www.google.com/reader','http://www.yahoo.com/','http://www.facebook.com/']  
  for x in a:  
       webbrowser.get('firefox').open_new_tab(x)  

You just need to copy and paste that code into a text file and save it as something like "opensite.py" (better to use the .py extension)

Make it executable running the following command in terminal:
 sudo chmod a+x opensite.py  

Run it either in the command line with
 python /path/to/opensite.py  

Or create a launcher (you can do this in Ubuntu easily by right clicking on the desktop)
