It’s 2004 for God’s sake. Why do idiots still insist on putting URL’s in plain text in a web page, so that I have to copy it and paste it into my URL bar?
Is it because they are afraid I won’t come back to their website, and want to dissuade me from visiting the other website? If that is really their attitude, I want to run away screaming from them anyway.
I want a plugin for Firebird that will scan the page and turn URLs into links. I want it to default to off, and only do its work when I choose “unfuck URL’s” from the context menu. It should work on a selection too (like the really great “View Selection Source” feature) so that if I don’t want it unfucking the entire page, I don’t have to.
