Script: Batch open selected text's links

Select some text and run the script to batch open links in tabs (instead of clicking(!) them one(!) by one(!)).

It’s great if you want to see fast what’s linked in a text. And it’s really great to open only links of a part of a text.

At the moment it finds http , https and x-devonthink-item links, should be easy to add more.

Todo: For ideal usage in markdown records the regex needs to be adjusted, so that it ignores the name part of links. Maybe someone more familiar with regex could take a look?
