Well, the man wants to have hyperlinks converted to [[org][links]].
At least for my setup, there is no behind-the-scenes magic that does
this.  I just get the visible text, not the (invisible) links.

I can't answer your original question, (though I'll be keen to see if
someone can), but you also might be interested in org-protocol, which
can pass a URL, a document title and a selected region directly from a
web browser to a running instance of Emacs.  AFAIK,l it doesn't do
link formatting, but it will pass the link to the page you're looking
at.  See this blissfully complex introduction to it.


org-annotation-helper is a simpler tool that also does this.
