Command-click URLs in Cocoa applications to launch them.

Overview

ICeCoffEE lets you command-click on URLs in Cocoa applications to launch them. It is modeled after ICeTEe, for classic Mac OS, which provided the same functionality in many Mac applications by patching TextEdit.

Command-click anywhere in a Cocoa application's text area to open the URL at that point. Some Cocoa applications that come with Mac OS X include Stickies, TextEdit, Mail, Safari and Network Utility.

Control-click (or if you have a multi-button mouse, click with the right button) on a text area, and notice a "Services" menu at the bottom. This menu works the same as the Services menu in the menu bar. You can choose to remove unwanted services from this menu.

What's new in ICeCoffEE

Version 1.5b5:
  • Compatible with Safari 4 Beta and recent WebKit versions
  • Don't signal an error when ⌘-clicking in WebKit doesn't find any text
  • Don't display "out of range" exception when clicking after the end of a non-empty text view in Mac OS X 10.5

ICeCoffEE uses APE, proceed with caution: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1545 Take a moment to peruse before taking any leap: http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2007/03/unsanity-updates-utilities-application-enhancer-unsupported-by-apple.ars Don

I LOVED this program. So easy to click on a URL & have it actually go to the site not matter what program I was in. now I've upgraded to 10.6 (yeah, I know there's 10.7 but haven't done it yet) & it doesn't work anymore. Here it says it goes up to 10.4, but developer site says 10.5. I wonder how different the 10.5 is from 10.6 since I would love to have this back. Never had a problem with the program using APE. really miss it.

A great timesaver! Glad to see it updated, and I have never had an issue with APE, Unsanity, or this developer.

This was one of my favorite and highly recommended utilities. And while I appreciate the developer updating it for Leopard, unfortunately it still uses APE (Application Enhancer). I state this only because APE has a history of interfering with some Apps and from what I have been told by other developers, it does not follow all of Apple Development Guidelines. As such it can become a source of instability with some Applications. In particular MacSpeech Dictate 'chokes' on it. So given the choice between Dictate and IceCoffEE, my nod goes to Dictate. Hopefully the developer will find a way to divorce it from APE in the future, so I can reinstall and use a utility I really enjoy using and that was a real timesaver for me.

The author is correct, and I apologize! ICeCoffEE was NOT causing the panics. After reading the author's reply to my last post, I reinstalled ICeCoffEE and it's working as it should. (Now if only we could delete unwanted services provided by Apple's apps!)

Version 1.5b1 consistently causes kernel panics under OS 10.5.2, with APE v.2.5b1 (newest beta version of APE for Leopard). Removal of ICeCoffEE 1.5b1 immediately resolved the panics, even though the APE module was not removed.

Please take the comments from “DONMONTALVO” and other anti-APE worrywarts with a healthy grain of salt. I've used ICeCoffEE (plus a half dozen other APE modules) for years without any stability, reliability, or compatibility issues. Don't fall for the FUD blindly. Install, play and test for yourself and come to your own conclusions. ICeCoffEE is super handy and a solid system enhancement.

Everyone should be aware this uses APE which in most managed environments is a huge no-no. Don Montalvo, NYC

Bless the day, and Nicholas Riley! How I've missed this little critter. Command-clicking into URLs and Email adresses is a breeze, but the real deal-maker is the Services Menu in the Contextual Menu: Services are almost useless to me under File. And what a deal: this is free. Lovely. A word to the wise: there is an amount of fear mongering about Application Enhancer Haxies in the sometimes paranoid Mac world. After years of use I can affirm they have often been a boon, and never a bane. As Universal apps they have deen redesigned anyway. Do yourself a favor, and give them a try.

Please use this with caution. I believe that it is responsible for removing my ability to right/control-click in most applications, which now crash instead. It also seems to have rendered all other APE modules ineffective. Hopefully the developer can address this ASAP. (OS X 10.4.5)

I'm EXTREMELY reluctant to install anything that involves APE, because in my experience I crash more with those items installed than I do without them. As much as I'd love to use this which adds to Cocoa apps what Carbon apps get for free.

ICeCoffEE 1.4 has a conflict with Safari 1.3 as included in Mac OS X 10.3.9 - you need to command-double-click instead of command-clicking on links to open them in new tabs/windows. ICeCoffEE's intended behavior in Safari (command-clicking in selected text) no longer functions. I'll be releasing ICeCoffEE 1.4.1 later today to fix the command-double-clicking problem at least, but for the moment, you can either command-double-click or add Safari to the Exclude List for ICeCoffEE in the APE Manager System Preferences pane. Sorry for the temporary inconvenience. If you have any other issues, please email me at icecoffee@sabi.net. Thanks.

I sure wish there'd just be some master program to convert services to contextual menus to menu bars (local or global) and vice versa. But in the meantime, this is a very useful program. Who likes to run extra laps with the cursor that they don't need to? By the way, Marc, check out the APE manager for ICeCoffEE. You can control which Services items show up.

Excellent addition to your system, especially now that it adds the Services menu to Contextual Menus. Would be great if you could control exactly which Services appeared in the contextual menu (although you can use Services Manager to achieve almost the same thing, although it applies across all Services, rather than just the ICeCoffEE menu.)

Unfortunately, it does not seem to be able to line wrap properly in iTerm, selecting only one line of the URL clicked on -- and that's always the line where the click was located. Selecting the entire thing does not help. I'm still stuck with no easy way to open long URLs while using epic/splitfire to chat in IRC. I can't drag the multiple lines to a browser either as something seems to be hard wrapping them before dumping them to clipboard/drag. Fix this and I'll be ecstatic.

Simply indespensable, once you have it. Just for the ease of being able to email URL's with a simple right-click, worth a lot - and it's *free*! If you use OSX, you want this. End of story.

From the author: APE is not "crash-prone". There are no known bugs which crash the host application in ICeCoffEE. I've received a grand total of one reproducible conflict report since releasing ICeCoffEE 1.3 out of more than 1000 downloads, and it's easily solved by adding SpeechFeedbackWindow.app to the exclude list (a more permanent fix will be in 1.3.1). In fact ICeCoffEE 1.3 is much more stable than the non-APE-using 1.1 ever was. If you have specific crash reports you can link to APE and/or ICeCoffEE, please let me and the folks at Unsanity know; we're all willing to fix the problems where they arise.

Love it! This should be a feature integrated into the os, but since it is not, this is a great piece of software to have.
