Plain Text Linker
Available for Chrome too.
When you double-click on a piece of plain text, Plain Text Linker tries to determine if what you clicked could be a URL and tries to open it. Try it!
- there is an option to require shift-doubleclick for a link to be opened, so you can still doubleclick URLs without anything happening
- ctrl-doubleclicking opens a URL in a background tab. This is consistent with standard browser behavior: clicking a link opens it in the foreground, ctrl-clicking it opens a background tab. For this reason, alt is also not available as a modifier key: alt-clicking a link downloads the target of the URL instead of opening it in a tab. Shift is the only key that generally isn't used as a modifier already, so PTL can use it as mentioned above.
Please rate/review/support! :)
Do report it correctly and with enough information, using the provided support site/email links, so it can be properly discussed, investigated, and resolved.
Do not abuse reviews for groundless whining - it's against AMO rules, and for good reasons. If you intend to post a bad rating, you must put in some effort to back it up and communicate with me properly first. Many bad reviews that don't go through the support channels turn out to be unjustified (often PEBKAC), which is unfair and wrongly makes me look bad. Uninformative, uncooperative, and plainly incorrect negative reviews will be reported to moderators for removal. I don't have to tolerate lies and misinformation any more than you have to tolerate genuinely bad addons.
