Despite being very usable without any additional script, there is one add-on which is particularly useful: an URL grabber.
All the URL grabbers that one can find on the irssi site have the same two problems:
- they cannot capture more than 1 URL per line.
- they do not do color highlighting of the URLs.
Detection of URLs
I have modified Jean-Yves Lefort's URL grabber for Irssi (
url.pl 0.54) to allow it to detect several URLs per line.

^V to underline the URL since two
^Vs get the text to its previous attributes.
I am using this slight modification called better URL grabber for Irssi (
I have not posted it on the irssi site because Jean-Yves Lefort is supposed to update his script and include those changes.
