Open URLs in the error/warning description

It can be more effort than it feels necessary to navigate to a URL in a message description.

To get to it you might type it into a browser, or more likely, copy the whole message and then copy the URL and then paste it into a browser.

But, you're a busy developer. You have better things to spend your time on than unnecessarily cutting and pasting URLs that you can't easily open.

What you need is a way to open that URL in a browser without all the faff.

Congratulations, you're in luck. I've just updated my Error Helper extension to enable just this scenario.

After you install the extension, you can simply right-click on the entry in the error list and select Open URL. I'm sure you can guess what will happen then ;)
What could be simpler?

And for the avoidance of any doubt, the other options highlighted above will copy the description of the selected entry into the clipboard or search for the description in your default browser.

If you haven't already go install it now.

Don't just take my word for it, here's what others have said.
