Re: different gecko-based browsers?

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).

1. I use middle-click often (virtually all of the time);
2. I click on links virtually all of the time (I use Tab key to cycle between form elements);
3. Some link text or images are small, so sometimes I miss it;
4. Most URLs in web pages (like "www.debian.org") I see are already links;

So, sorry, I regard that feature as useless and annoying in browsers. Maybe it's more useful in mailreaders...
