how to open

I'm in Chrome 34 on Android 4.4.2 and a web page contains a URL as normal text, not marked up as a link. How do I open it?

I selected it and tapped the share button: nothing useful.

I copied it and tapped around in the address bar: no way to paste!?

Re: how to open

Should be long-press to copy - A piece of text will become hightlighted with cursor tabs. Move the cursors to highlight the desired text, then tap the Copy icon in the toolbar above. To paste, long-press where you want to insert the copied text, and a little Paste bubble pops up. Tap that to insert text.

You should be able to copy/paste the URL into the address bar and go. If not, the URL must be wrong.
