I've used the linkification addon for firefox for a while, but it's a nuisance because it tends to slow down firefox and cause firefox to go into page loading loops quite often. I only need links "linkified" for certain sites, so having this happen to every page on the web gets irritating. Thanks to this script I can now @include only the sites I want linkified and keep firefox running faster.
It may be placebo but this script feels faster than Linkification which I've been using for as long as I can remember.
It doesn't hit all the links that Linkification does. http://yellow5.us/firefox/testcases.txt
But, maybe that's why it's faster?
This is absolutely necessary to have.
Works very well in Chromium nightly (currently 9.0.562.0). Thanks a lot for making this, I had almost given up finding something that works.
I switched from Linkification add-on to this userscript and it's been working really well so far. Actually at some points, it works better and faster than the add-on.
This script is very useful to avoid annoying copy/paste ...
Simple, fast, and it works without a problems.
Amazing script, just what I was looking for.
The only exception I had was when a URL preceded with a word and a period by mistake:
i.e. My name is Dan.http://www.dan.com
This picks up the following URL:
However, if I change Line 93 to:
it works perfectly.
Any reason why period can be accepted prior to :// ?
Thanks a mil!
