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.

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.
