Auto-link URLs in task names

wodow says:
How about automatically making web addresses hyperlinked in task names?

I sometimes create tasks such as "look at x and y on", usually where I've pasted in the URL from another window or tab.

I realise this could make selecting such tasks slightly tricky. Any ways around that?

We've been thinking about this -- so long as it doesn't interfere with task selection, it should be possible. We'll add it to that to-do list :)

In the meantime you can just use the firefox linkification extension to do this on all websites.

as long as only the URL (and not the full task bar/background) is clickable, I don’t see a problem with selection

I'm fine with adding this functionality, as long as you leave the field for a URL. That one works fine for me. I'd be upset if I HAD TO put any URL in the task name, as it would make the task name considerably longer, even using a URL shortener.
