Manual Reference Pages - CLIPBROWSE (1)
clipbrowse - Load a URL from the clipboard into your browser.
# ...copy something
# (You might want to do a clipjoin if the URL text is messy)
Remember that many browsers will usefully load things that dont look like
URLs. For example Firefox does a Google Im feeling lucky with non-URLs.
This means you can have any text in your clipboard and clipbrowse.
It saves a couple of seconds every time you run it. Chrome and Firefox, for
examples, automatically create a new tab and loads the page when you invoke it
from the command line. Already weve saved a Ctrl+T and a Shift+Insert. When
you consider the parallelizing (that your browser will be actively loading the
page while youre Alt+Tabbing to it), youve squeaked out a little more.
Maybe Im just a freak, but I like shaving out wasted time like that.
The environment variable $BROWSER will override the default launching
command. If you have a %s in the line, it will be replaced with the url. if
not, the url will be appended at the end.
The default is chromium-browser %s (Debians Google Chrome)
If you still use Firefox, consider: firefox -remote openURL(%s,new-tab).
