I work remotely via ssh on my dev machine which runs a tmux. I want to pipe the output of the Gbrowse back to my laptop. Is there any reasonable way to do that.

You can use Gbrowse! to get the url copied into the clipboard and then either paste it in the local browser or fire another :!ssh command from the remote machine to the local machine, like (from vim in the ssh session)

:Gbrowse! | exe "!ssh $LOCAL 'nohup google-chrome " . @+ . "' &"

change google-chrome to other browsers or xdg-open to use the default if you are in ubuntu.
