McURL, the Minecraft URL Launcher, is a unique tool that allows you to jump onto Minecraft SMP servers straight from your favorite browser. Like Minecraft itself, McURL requires Java. Currently, only the Windows edition definitely works. Setups for Linux distributions using KDE and Gnome are available as well, but there might be bugs. The Mac OS version is experimental and may or may not run on your computer (I'd appreciate feedback).
The actual operation of McURL is very simple. When you click an McURL link (
minecraft:// links), your browser launches McURL, which prompts you for a username and password. If you haven't disabled it in the settings, McURL will automatically fill these out from your Minecraft data if it is able to. Once you click "Log In", the McURL launcher closes and the standard Minecraft launcher opens up and logs you in, sending you to the server of your choice. Rest assured I will never steal your username or password - take a look at the forum threads below for server admins using McURL and developers attesting to its safety.
Want to contact me about McURL, be it a problem, comment, or suggestion? Take a visit the Minecraft Forums or on the Bukkit Forums and leave me a message. You can access the settings menu by visiting minecraft://settings/.
