Support Google, YouTube, Maps, Amazon, FaceBook, Digg, Email, Blogger, etc. and you can add your own channels.

Cleeki contains the function to convert any URL text to a hyperlink:

8) In case 7) doesn't work, select any text that containing the URL using the method in Step 1) or 2), and select "Go to URL" from the menu to directly open the URL.
