When using Process.Start with ProcessStartInfo.UseShellExecute=true and an url as the item to open, the "open" process stays alive until the web browser is closed. This is because it uses "open -W". Right now I have 15 "open" processes running on my system because of this.
I'm not sure why the -W argument is necessary. There's no reason to have a handle to the "open" process.
