HOWTO: Open URLs in Terminal

Saturday, October 27th, 2007

In previous versions of Mac OS X, you could cmd-click on links in Terminal (say, in [irssi]), and they’d open in a web browser. Very handy.

In Mac OS X Leopard this has changed — it’s now cmd-shift click. I don’t know why, but before I found out about it, my life was sadness.

So go and be happy, friends!
