When logging in to Salesforce, can there be browser automation?

Hi,

I'm looking for a solution where the end-user logs into Salesforce and, upon login, another browser tab opens to an external website (example: cnn.com).  If it was just me, I would set my browser to launch specific tabs on startup, but I'm trying to set this up for about 90 people (not many are computer saavy) in my ORG and my superior is wondering if I could automate this when they login to Salesforce. 

Any help, or alternative solutions, would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi, Jeff, new in the Winter 15 release is Login Flow, it allows you to cusotmize login processes for users based on their profile. This might be a way to redirect them to another page upon login.

Some documentation here: http://releasenotes.docs.salesforce.com/en-us/api_cti/release-notes/rn_forcecom_security_login_flows.htm

There is also a video of a session from Dreamforce going over the details: Customizing User Authentication with Login Flows (http://dreamforce.vidyard.com/watch/sv9Avz97FdQKKO1xAo4www)

Let us know if this works out for you.

Best,
