Quick way to open links on your Mac

Quick LinksUsing Workflow on my iOS devices, whenever I see a link I would like to review later I have a workflow which copies the URL and stores this into a note within evernote.

I also use this for when I am working on my Mac, or a PC etc, just save all the links to one page.  Every week or so, I like to click on a few to take further notes, review further or just read and discard.

It can be a bit annoying to keep flicking back between the apps, loading a new link etc, however I have found an easier way.  Now you need to use the terminal for this.  What you want to do is copy some links from your page, load terminal, and type

xargs -n 1 open (the paste in your URL's)

From there you will see multiple tabs (or windows depending on your setup) and then you can start reviewing.  If you are going to use this often then I would recommend putting this as a script or as an alias in your profile. 

I am always interested in feedback so please feel free to add any comments, or you can mail me  here.  If you would like to submit a quick tip  with full credit and links back to your site then also feel free to contact me.
