I isolate the URL on a line by itself (if it's in a buffer that
I don't mind messing up -- otherwise I copy it to *scratch*).

Then I edit it so it reads

x 'long://and.complicated&url'

Then I use M-| to feed the line to the shell. (x is my alias for the
browser executable, which either opens the browser or adds a new tab
if already open.)

The problem is that I'm running emacs on a headless remote server.  All I want is to display the url uninterrupted so that I can copy it into the browser on my local machine.
