I use multi-gnome-terminal, too. While it has URL highliting, I haven't found out yet whether it also has URL handling, i.e. that one clicks on an URL starting with "http://" and having it open it in your favourite browser. Is this configurable, and how?

Try ctrl+middle mouse button. Configurability is a little bit of an issue, it seems to not listen to any off the mechanisms available on my Debian system: /etc/alternatives/, sensible-browser, gnome settings, all of which are pointed to firefox. Yet it manages to start up plain mozilla on all URL's I click. Couldn't find anything in the documentation. Anyone for a solution (other than sym-linking /usr/bin/mozilla to firefox)?
For the rest MGT is great. It is the only terminal I can find with tabs and configurable shortcut-keys for self-defined 'tab-profiles' (unlike konsole and gnome-terminal), which is handy if you log into different computers regularly
