Capturing URLs from messages

In any channel, users sometimes post the URLs of interesting websites or other resources on the web. You can double-click any such URL and Konversation will launch the application associated with the URL. The application launched depends upon the MIME type of the URL. For example, a URL beginning with http: will activate your default KDE web browser and display the web page. (You can also specify the web browser to use.) If the URL scrolls off the screen, you might have trouble finding it again. Konversation can keep a convenient list of all URLs for you. To activate this feature, choose WindowURL Catcher on the main menu. A new tab called URL Catcher is created.
