Some browsers require you to load it before executing gozilla. Whether or not gozilla waits for exiting of browser depends on browser.

        $ mozilla &
        $ gozilla +82 ctags.c

        $ setenv BROWSER 'epiphany --new-tab'
        $ epiphany &

Gozilla can treat not only source file but also normal file, directory, HTML file and even URL, because it is omnivorous.
