Support for "run://" urls in Firefox to execute (securely) applications

Registered by Alfonso de Cala on 2010-04-15

First we added apt: support to Firefox to make package installation easier. Now we propose to add a "run:" handler to launch software from a web page.

Useful and dangerous. An html manual could include a link to an assistant. Authoring something like Ubuntu Tweaks would be really easy as well. However we should control carefully which programs are runnable.
