I am creating Log-Reports which are viewable through the Web-browser. Is there an easy way to make links clickable in Linux Terminal? (Gnome-Terminal)
I am copying those links and manually open my web-browser to achieve that right now.

If the links are output as full URLs, they should be clickable when you hover over them (with the mouse pointer) while holding Ctrl down.
Newer version of GNOME terminal now support hyperlinks with custom target via certain escape sequences. Try
echo -e '\e]8;;http://example.com\aThis is a link\e]8;;\a'
Opening these works the same way as described in the answer by Stephen Kitt.
