Linkify uses a (close to) complete list of valid top-level domains to ensure that only valid URLs and email addresses are matched.
Each string is analyzed exactly once to detect every kind of linkable entity
Linkify is designed to be fast and lightweight, but comes with a powerful plugin API that lets you detect even more information like #hashtags and @mentions.
