I'm not sure if you can, to be honest. (Although I may be wrong).
Windows lets you do this because the .url extension is associated with
your browser through the windows registry. Hardly any other operating
systems have a registry type thing...(I don't even think mac has one).

What you could do is make a shell script that executes your browser
with a command line option with the URL. Check the docs for your
browser, almost every browser lets you do this. Like "firefox
-url=http://asdf.com"; or something.

Probably depends on the desktop actually. If you have Gnome or KDE then you should be able to do this, since it is very basic functionality of any modern desktop.

I just looked at this in KDE: on your desktop, right click and goto 'new' and then goto 'location [url]' - type in the info and hit 'ok'. I don't have the Gnome installed, but bet that the functionality is there in one of the menus.
