Well, you can use writebuf/readbuf.  In my screen setup, I bound C-b
(b for browser) to something like:
eval "stuff ' '" "writebuf" "exec $HOME/.screen/openurl"
NOTE: the first stuff ' ' I use to end my copy selection... I begin
highlighting, move to the end and hit C-b

with openurl being something like (because the exec command doesn't do
backticks and such):
screen -t url elinks `cat /tmp/screen-exchange`

Now, that's off the cuff, as I don't have access to my screenrc right
now, but you could probably just bind a key to:
eval "writebuf" "exec myurlscript"

with myurlscript being:
screen -t url elinks `cat /tmp/screen-exchange`
or even:
mozilla-firefox `cat /tmp/screen-exchange`
