In version 0.4.4-dev, you can now enable the bare display (default key: alt+"!"), which is designed to let you click easily on URLs.

This can be achieved with two commands:
 /set weechat.look.align_end_of_lines time
 /set weechat.look.eat_newline_glitch on

The first one makes sure the rest of the url starts at the beginning of the line, and the second one (available since 0.3.6) makes sure there is no \n so that you can copy/paste easily.

This is also going to affect short words, though.

When text wrap code cannot find a space (" ") to wrap the text, and have to split a word/url in half it shouldn't indent the next line. This way the terminal text selection will follow the word to the next line.

Example:

Instead of:

 .-------------------------------------------------.
| xterm                                         [X] |
|---------------------------------------------------|
|15:54 <@si-m1> check out this awesome IRC client   |
|               everyone!                           |
|15:57 <@si-m1> http://weechat.org/files/ubuntu/mave|
|               rick/0.3.4/amd64/weechat-core_0.3.4-|
|               1_amd64.deb                         |
|                                                   |
|[15:59] 3 [irc/irc.freenode.net] [Act: 10,9,7,11,++|
|[si-m1] _                                          |
'---------------------------------------------------'

Wrap as following:
 .-------------------------------------------------.
| xterm                                         [X] |
|---------------------------------------------------|
|15:54 <@si-m1> check out this awesome IRC client   |
|               everyone!                           |
|15:57 <@si-m1> http://weechat.org/files/ubuntu/mave|
|rick/0.3.4/amd64/weechat-core_0.3.4-1_amd64.deb    |
|                                                   |
|[15:59] 3 [irc/irc.freenode.net] [Act: 10,9,7,11,++|
|[si-m1] _                                          |
'---------------------------------------------------'

This will not look as nice, but it will make the url selection and detection work correctly in the terminal.
