Add "open with" context menu to URL extension

How would i go about adding the "open with" option in the context menu for URL extensions? I use 3 different browsers since some do things better than others, and id like more of an option when opening a link I've placed on my desktop other than always using the default browser. So I'd like to be able to add the "open with" option so i can choose which to open it with.
