How can I open a URL in Android's web browser from my application?

How to open an URL from code in the built-in web browser rather than within my application?

I tried this:

try {
Intent myIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse(download_link));
} catch (ActivityNotFoundException e) {
Toast.makeText(this, “No application can handle this request.”
+ " Please install a webbrowser", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
but I got an Exception:

No activity found to handle Intent{action=android.intent.action.VIEW data

thank you
