How about "Using your browser, go to www.whatever.com
<http://www.whatever.com> " or "Using your browser, access
www.whatever.com"?

My obsession of the hour:

Would you say "point your browser to www.whatever.com" in a technical
document? (In my case, software installation instructions that
contain references to some web-based information.)

I'm not fond of this phrase, but can't think of a better one. Ideas?
