    Is there a Safari Extension available similar to Firefox' NewTabURL?:

    NewTabURL

    The specific functionality I'm looking for is when opening a new tab if there's a URL on the clipboard, then the new tab will automatically direct towards that URL. A huge time saver!

    Thanks!

    I'm curious to know how this is a benefit. How, exactly, would the URL get on the clipboard in the first place?

    If there's a URL on a website that you want to open that is not a hyperlink, then you have to copy it, open new tab, select the address field, then paste the URL, then hit "enter". The Firefox NewTabURL allows you to save 2 movements from 5. A time saver.

    Why not just highlight the URL, right-click and open it in a new tab?
