I have my mailcap entry set up so that "viewing" an html message uses
w3m but "printing" an html message opens it in chromium:

  $ fgrep text/html ~/.mailcap 

  text/html; w3m -T text/html -dump; copiousoutput; print = chromiumurl %s;

  $ cat ~/bin/chromiumurl 

  test -f "$URL" && URL="file://$URL"
  expr match "$URL" '.*://.*' >/dev/null || URL="http://$URL";
  exec chromium "$URL"
