Aha! Got it, thanks. It does work, as long as you don't have the 
NoScript Firefox extension installed. NoScript apparently thinks it's a 
cross-scripting attempt and blocks it. When it isn't installed, revGoURL 
works. Thanks for making me test again.

Yes, that works too.

The down side is that both methods open in a new tab. I'd rather it 
acted like a regular link.
