Extract URLs filter - suggested extension

Currently the Extract URLs filter has the following function:
Extract URLs. This filter lists http://, https://, ftp:// and gopher:// URLs one per line (using a DOS line feed, CR/LF).
Refrerring to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_R ... Identifier
it's apparent that only four schemes are presently supported.
  • http
    https
    ftp
    gopher
Since the filter was first included in TextPipe, several more schemes have emerged as URIs.

For example, Chrome has special URLs that load application-specific pages instead of websites or files on disk.

It would seem sensible therefore to permit the user to extend this filter to facilitate the extraction of URLs that make use of such further schemes.

Best regards,

David
