cool fire(bird|fox) extension
well, since i have a list of to-dos about 93,000,000 miles long, I never got around to fixing a problem that i find frustrating. Namely, I find it frustrating when people or websites don't put anchor tags around a URL. This means that you have to copy and paste the URL into the address bar to go there. Kinda defeats the purpose.
Anyway, some kind sould make the Select Search browser extension for firefox and firebird. This does exactly what i want. I can highlight a URL and right click to point my web browser to that URL. Nice. It even defaults to opening the URL in a new tab that does not have the focus. Very sweet.
