Urlize plain text in your browser

Now and again I have a bunch of URLs in a plain text file and want to open them all up in browser tabs. One trick is to email them to myself, and let the email client turn the URLs into links. Here’s a quicker solution. Just paste any text into the box below and any URLs will appear urlized below.


Bonus, if you’re a terminal user on Mac and use iTerm2, then cmd+click will open urls from the terminal.
