More About Google Calendar Clickable Links in Popups

Google's Calendar popups add zero width space characters every 10 or so characters to the Where field, in order to create a "wrapping" effect without visibly altering the text. The issue with this is that if you copy/paste text out of the Where field, it will still contain the zero width space character mixed into all of the text. While this isn't a problem when the "where" is a Google Hangouts video link (because they replace the where field with their special widget), and it's not much of a problem if the where field contains a physical address (because Google provides a "map" link to map to the location), it becomes a problem if you want to store information in the where field that doesn't fit into Google's way of thinking.

Say you want to store a Go To Meeting URL, WebEx URL, BlueJeans.com URL, or perhaps a Room.co URL in the Where field. First, the link isn't made clickable. Second, if you copy the URL and paste it into the Chrome "omnibar", the zero width space is pasted right along with the rest of the URL. Not only that, the zero width space is converted to a valid escaped URL code for the zero width space. You would notice this as % encoded characters in the URL - except Chrome autoconverts % encoded values into their appropriate utf-8 character in the URL bar to support multi-lingual URLs and UTF-8 characters in searches via the "omnibar". So, you think you pasted the clean url, but the zero width spaces remain, and the various meeting services report the URL to be invalid, and you can't join your meeting.

This extension fixes both of these issues by first removing the erroneously used zero with space character and then finding and making clickable any http link in the where field.
