If you look at texdoc, you'll find the following comment:
  # Viewing programs, according to filename extension.  (You can
  # override or add to them by setting environment variables).
and later:
  : ${TEXDOCVIEW_html='netscape -remote openURL'"'(%s)'"' 2>/dev/null || netscape %s &'}

So, all you need to do is to set the environment variable TEXDOCVIEW_html
to whatever you need before starting texdoc.
