In a pure Wayland environment (without xwayland), the DISPLAY environment variable is not present. Therefore the call to `xdg-settings get default-browser` is not made. So the webbrowser behaviour is different between X11 and Wayland environment. I'm working on a fix, should submit a GitHub PR soon.

```
❯ export | grep DISPLAY
WAYLAND_DISPLAY=wayland-0
❯ python -c "import webbrowser; print(webbrowser.get())"
<webbrowser.GenericBrowser object at 0x7f6f1b755160>
```
