There is no way to start the repobrowser for http:// URLs.

TSVN registers the svn:// and svn+ssh:// protocoll only because there is
*no* other application installed (at least not by default) which can
handle these protocols directly from a webpage.

And I knew back when I registered TSVN for those protocols and also the
tsvn:// protocol that people will start asking for more and more
protocols to be registered, one for each specific feature they want to
have. That's why I waited a long time until I finally decided to do
that. I just don't want to get this out of hand - and besides: good
browsers today don't just open such apps but show a big warning dialog
that an external app has to be launched for that kind of link.

If you really want, you can create a *.reg file for your users with
which you register your own protocol handler, pointint to TSVN.
