It seems that browser copies link url to clipboard, but there is no action for copying the link text as well. Both are needed I think.

currently you can't copy text from the browser at all, even if it's not a link.

Tried tapping long on a link, but nothing... Please implement it as it is in SMS app, with zoom and two "cursors"

copying urls only works in the url-editing screen, not on a page

But this should work in my opinion, not only for links. Copying antelephone number to phonebook, a mail address to mail or even a text to SMS, is a feature that a nowerdays smartphone should be capable.

I hope developers are reading here in forum to know the users needs. ;)

@Saimen: yes, it should, yes, developers are reading it and yes, it'll be implmented eventually, see here and here
