Anybody that’s ever had to spend time highlighting a url in the text of a web page so that they could copy it and paste it into the location bar is going to love this little gem.

Linkification is a Firefox add on that takes any url on a page and turns it into a link.  For example, This url is not coded as a link: http://dilithiumcrystalworks.com, but if when I load this page after I publish this entry, the “Linkification” plugin will see it and convert it so that it’s the same thing as if I had coded it <a href="http://dilithiumcrystalworks.com"&gthttp://dilithiumcrystalworks.com</a> and I’ll see it like this http://dilithiumcrystalworks.com (<—that one IS a link)

You can get it from the Mozilla Addons site at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/190
