Script to open Websites from After Effects

Hey guys,

I'm wondering if anyone would know how to open a website with a script. I want to add a couple of buttons to my Kbar Toolbar for websites my team visits frequently for production, mainly Google Sheets.

Is this possible?

Thanks!
Oscar

On Windows:
system.callSystem("cmd /c start https://forums.creativecow.net/adobeaftereffects/");

On macOS (I think):
system.callSystem("open https://forums.creativecow.net/adobeaftereffects/");

If you're using CEP panels, I think you could even wrap the spreadsheet in an Ae panel:
