LXer: open a url highlighted from anywhere on your desktop with this quick tip for Fedora

Published at LXer:

Sometimes when i am using certain applications (especially text editors), the applications themselves do not make URLs that are written out clickable and openable in my default browser. Usually, this would result in me having to highlight the link, copy it to the clipboard, switch to my web browser, open a new tab, paste the link and go.
