    How many ways can a URL be opened???

    Hello,

    I was wondering about the different means through which a URL could be opened and came up with these six:

    1) Manually entered: type written into a device
    2) Hyperlink: found on web site, email and similar
    3) Spoken: via supporting devices
    4) QR: Scan qr
    5) NFC: Touch NFC tag
    6) URL Forwarding: bounce from one website to another

    Would the community like to tell me if I forgot any others?

    Thank you very much !

    What about a script that loads a URL? An example of this is the wallpaper slide show. That is controlled by an XML file with pointers to images on local storage. Those references could easily be changed to URL references. Or, does this method come under #6?
