Easy Copy is a handy Firefox add-on that helps to copy any webpage title, URL, HTML source, and title link. Apart from this, it is also helpful to copy wiki link of a webpage that includes webpage URL and title together. Not only this, you can even copy details of all webpages currently opened on your Firefox browser. It can be useful in any situation, like when you want to save all URLs of your browser session, or you need to send URLs to your friend.
One more interesting thing about this plugin is that it lets you copy each and every URL (as text or HTML) present in a webpage in one go. This may include hyperlinks, rss feed URL, and other links. Easy Copy provides all of these options in right-click context menu. Whenever you want to copy any of these details, you simply need to right-click on active webpage, and use any appropriate option.
