Hotlink to an Accounts URL

For most of us outside of the states, online banking interaction is not provided by our banking institutions.

So my normal routine is to launch MD, then launch my browser and login to each of my 'accounts' and enter / clear transactions manually. Whether this is a bank account, credit card, mortgage etc account.

On the "Account" setup why not add a new field in which you can enter a URL associated with the account (irrespective of whether it is a bank/creditcard/investment/asset/etc ).

Then when you click into an account , on the top of the register menu bar (where the buttons, All, unconfirmed, 30 days... new transaction etc is) you could have a button with an icon like an arrow -> which means launch your default browser and open a new window with the URL of this account.

This way it would be possible to quickly go to any online institution for any type of account.

    I agree with this suggestion , this will be helpful..for people outside the US , and this is probably simple to
    Implement , if it is a long standing suggestion is about time with the new release to do something about it !
    There is life ...and business outside the US.
