In Safari, if you want to copy the link URL, you should do 3 operations:
- Hover the link
- Right-click the link
- Use the "Copy link" item from the main/contextual menu
Alternatively, you can hover/navigate to the link and then select the link (usually if textual) by using the mouse/trackpad. Then you hit CMD+C and have the link copied, but these are still 3 operations (navigate/hover, select, copy).
So, the question: Is there a way in Safari to reduce the above to just 2 operations: 1) Hover and 2) Copy ?
It seems there are similar tools/plugins for Firefox and Chrome:
There is even a plugin for Safari which does something similar, but not exactly: Type to navigate. The issue is that this plugin is not designed to solve the above problem, so even though the plugin allows you to copy the link you have selected, it is not solving the real problem – how to reduce the steps to just 2 (hover and copy).
Ideas are welcome!
