Opening URLs from Vim

Big thanks to Keith Smiley for this tip to kickstart this blog once more!

Just discovered gx in vim. Totally amazed at how often I find things that will massively improve my usage.

From within Vim if you position your cursor over any URL and hit gx, the URL will be opened in your default browser. Simple and incredibly effective!
