Software: Firefox Text To Link

How many ways can you use text in a Web page as a link?

  • Highlight text with your mouse pointer, then drag and drop your selection into the address bar.
  • Hit F7, highlight text using the cursor keys, copy the text into the clipboard, paste the text into the address bar.
  • Install the Linkification extension. This extension makes all parse-able text in a page into links.
  • Install the Plain Text to Link extension. Highlight some text, then use the context menu to open that text as a link.
