Default Feature Request - Add Open URL with external browser

I have been able to change the Quest links to open in the default external browser, Perhaps you could add it as an optional download for the Quest Journal.

For this I changed the code in "eq2ui_journals_quest.xml", line 71. Could be changed in other places too.

<Button Location="2,50" MaximumSize="60,26" MinimumSize="60,26" Name="URL2" OnPress="Url=(&quot;http://u.eq2wire.com/q/&quot;)##(Parent.Parent.Parent.QuestDetails.Name.Text)&#xD;&#xA;browserexternal Url" ScrollExtent="60,26" Size="60,26" Style="/CommonElements.SmallPushButton.data.style" Visible="false">EQ2U</Button>
Command is "browserexternal"

Thank you for this feedback, Alarra. I've had some trouble using the /browserexternal command whenever the URL has spaces in the string. There was a discussion about this issue a while back, which actually led to development of the URL Helper. The helper watches the log file for URL requests, with and without spaces, and sends them to your default browser much like I wish the /browserexternal command would do reliably.

There is also an issue when opening the external browser for players who like to play the game full screen. As you know, opening the browser disrupts the UI when it switches the game into windowed mode. So the URL Helper also gives you a way to run the game in "fullscreen windowed" mode like many other games can already do. Opening the browser in this mode doesn't disturb the game window, and you get the benefit of using the entire screen while playing.
