urls: from .txt file to browser tabs. How?
« on: February 23, 2008, 06:40:07 AM »
I have this little text file with URLs that I need to test.
I'm thinking on passing Opera/FF/Whatever a text file with urls, and getting each one opened in a tab. Is this Possible? How?

Thanks

if you don't mind copying the contents into the clipboard first, then you can use this Firefox add-on: Copy All Urls.

copies and pastes all urls of open tabs inclusive history in structured and well defined form to and from clipboard.

For a few URLs i just use PSPad to "read" the text and click the URL to open it in iE

And, BTW, since a few like this:

another possible alternative - <a href="http://www.tranglos....m/free/visiturl.html">VisitURL</a>

no longer developed, but I used it for quite a while (albeit sometime ago) and it's works a treat

can capture urls from the clipboard or (apparently) import from (or export to) a file - captured URLs can be opened as a batch in your browser of choice, and/or saved as 'permanent' list.

urlwolf,

Do any of these suggestions fit the bill?

If not, create a batch file to read each line and envoke "Start Browser.exe %%1"

Actually I ended up using a plugin for firefox not recommended here:

But mostly all solutions here would do the trick, thanks.

Using any glue script language (ahk, python, perl, ruby -note alphabetical order not to piss anyone :) ) was my last resort.
