You can use DDE package or host command.

USING DDE :

declare
AppID PLS_INTEGER;
WebBrowser VARCHAR2(100) := 'C:Progra~1Intern~1iexplore.exe';
WebPage VARCHAR2(100) := 'www.abc.com';
BEGIN
AppID := DDE.App_Begin(WebBrowser || ' ' || WebPage, DDE.APP_MODE_minimized);
DDE.App_End(AppID);
EXCEPTION
WHEN DDE.DDE_APP_FAILURE THEN
message('failed to open website');
END;

USING HOST :

host('C:Progra~1Intern~1iexplore.exe');
