Available since version 2.5

Launch URLs directly from Keypirinha

The URL plugin allows you to launch any URL that has its scheme (a.k.a. protocol) associated with an application by the operating system.

Examples of recognized URLs:

  • https://duckduckgo.com

  • ftp://ftp.debian.org

  • https://[2001:db8:85a3:8d3:1319:8a2e:370:7348]:443/

Note that the http, https and ftp schemes are always associated with your web browser by Keypirinha so application settings like web_browser, web_browser_new_window and web_browser_private_mode can be applied.
