Good grief, that's one of the best features of *nix-based browsers that 
doesn't really exist elsewere - highlight a url-like block of text, say 
www.debian.org and then middle-click in the rendering area but not on a 
link or text area and the browser will take you there. In some cases, 
doing the same thing in the tab bar will open it in a new tab 
(Konqueror does this).
