Nice list of custom actions.
I'm wondering if there are any plans to extend the list of default custom actions that are available via the options dialog. For example, I think adding this one would be useful for not just web developers but any one interested in easily seeing the breakdown of a URL and being able to edit it:

URL Parser

Suggestions are always welcome.

I gave URL Parser a little try and it's an interesting idea. The things you can do with it are things I would normally do by hand, but to someone who might not know it's a nifty tool. I'll consider adding it in a future version. (would be in the second tier actions; available in the options by default but not the short default menu)
