Summary0001892: Missing "copy URL" option
DescriptionI have not found this option anywhere in the menus or documentation.

No option in context menu, nor any other way I can find, to yank a link into any buffer. This is the only graphical browser I've tested which does not offer this option. I would think it's standard to right click on a link and grab the URL for transport to another application or location.

All sites and web pages tested.
Steps To ReproduceRight-click on link; no such option appears.

Do you have an Object->Link->Save/Download target/Openin in new window context menu option in your port?

The Atari Frontend implements that option ;)

It's also possible with GTK, for many links. Open the link in a new tab and copy from the URL bar.

sabotage_linux (reporter)

"open in new tab and copy link" is not really an option.
take for example http://ftp.gnu.org/ and click on the tar.gz there - it doesnt open in a new tab but instead the download dialogue pops up. likewise you may specifically *not* want to open an url, for example to copy/paste it into a tor-anonymized browser or download program.
