Hyperlinks (a.k.a. HTML-like anchors) in terminal emulators
[ Update 2020-05-31: I won't be maintaining this page or responding to comments anymore (except for perhaps a few exceptional occasions). ]
Most of the terminal emulators auto-detect when a URL appears onscreen and allow to conveniently open them (e.g. via Ctrl+click or Cmd+click, or the right click menu).
It was, however, not possible until now for arbitrary text to point to URLs, just as on webpages.
