For emails, it reconnects links in emails which have been broken across several lines, and also replaces spaces with the URL character code %20 to that you may follow emailed network file: links (which it auto-detects from Windows X: or \\serv\dir references).
For web pages, it also allows you to select textual links/URLs in web pages or edit boxes, and follow them as if they were real links. It will always let you follow ‘links’ and also analyses mailto: links.
New in 2.00 is a dialogue allowing customisation of the open-as menu.
Has several language translations; more are welcome!
A Mozilla ‘Sherlock’ search-engine plugin for the Jargon File. Here’s the src file and the png to go with it. You can install it automatically, or find it, along with a whole bunch of others, at the Mycroft Mozdev site. If you’ still using Mozilla and not Firefox, I recommend the Easysearch plugin too, although with Firefox I’m now hooked on the Googlebar plugin.
