When use IE7,What would really be nice is to have a context selection
that when a person puts a URL into a document but does not hyper link
it, would allow you to highlight it, right click and have a selection
like "Go to URL of opera MenuExt",Who can help to do it?

Quoted text here. Click to load it

You would perhaps have better luck getting such a feature implemented
in a community-developed, open-source browser such as Mozilla Firefox
or SeaMonkey, as opposed to a closed-source proprietary one such as IE.

In fact, what you want can probably be implemented as a GreaseMonkey
script for Firefox (and maybe there's even one already out there).


Re: ie7 MenuExt

Here's a bookmarklet I created with your design specs;
it works in msie 6; I don't have 7 to test it in.  Also, it fails
in Firefox probably due to the document.selection aspect.

It should work just fine in your ie 7 links tool bar though!
here's the code: copy & paste to create a new html file.
then drag the link created up into your links tool bar.
if you then select a valid url in a web page then click the
it will take you to that link.

hope this helps! -Jim
<body >
here are some links to use in testing the bookmarklet:<br/> <br/>
Go to VIEW >> TOOLBARS >> LINKS to display your links toolbar in MSIE.
Once it is there, drag the link below up and drop it on the tool bar.
this should create the bookmarklet. <br>

Then, highlite or select the text on a web page that you think may be a
URL.  <br>
After selecting it, click on the bookmarklet you just created in the
tool bar.  if the text is a properly <br>

formed URL, the window location should re-direct and go to that link.

The bookmarklet link is here:<br>

== 'Text'){seltextlink =seltex.createRange();linker =
seltextlink.text+'';self.location=linker;}})();">Goto URL
