    Ugh, the convenience crap again.

    Hear me out on this one. While cool, very arguably this is a -bad- idea and should be discouraged. This reminds me of ActiveX and the like, where clicking something could result in a program install. "sudo" and the browser should never mix, ever. Shit, I'll go as far as saying that the browser should run in a sandboxed VM with zero access to normal computer assets.

    Don't encourage bad security practice, especially when the benefit is convenience. This isn't Windows-land.

      You have to enter in a password in order for AptURL to install anything.

      How is clicking on an URL to install a package via apt any different from manually installing the .deb via gdebi?

        Now if Zypper can work with .deb then that'll be kickass
