you can use a number to jump to the appropriate URL!

I guess thats a tradeoff between "making sure and loading the
correct one or "loading a wrong URL anyway" ......

if you set "wait_key" to no it does not (mutt manual):
Controls whether Mutt will ask you to press a key after shell- escape,
pipe-message, pipe-entry, print-message, and print-entry commands.
It is also used when viewing attachments with ``autoview'', provided
that the corresponding mailcap entry has a needsterminal flag, and the
external program is interactive.
When set, Mutt will always ask for a key. When unset, Mutt will wait
for a key only if the external command returned a non-zero status.
Rule number six: No pooftahs.
