I don't know what system you are using but on Linux, all I have to to
is display the log file in a terminal window (using less) and I can
copy URLs straight from the text by putting the cursor over the URL
and using the right mouse button to pop up a context menu. No need for
a browser.

Perhaps, but given that a lot of people use radically different style
files from the default, it may not be taken up by the hard-core
stylers? Don't know, just guessing.
