This functionality would be great to have integrated with a browser. then you could go to a web page referencing the various IOCs, and highlight and exports them directly.

Parsing IOCs from a web page is definitely a priority. The approach we're considering is to add that functionality to IOCextractor (retrieve a web page and parse it) instead of adding the IOCextractor functionality to a browser. The main reason is that using Python to retrieve a URL is pretty straightforward, but converting Python code into a browser extension looks like a bigger project.

Any thoughts on whether an "Open URL" button would do most of what people need? Or any suggestions on turning Python code into a browser extension?

Open URL would do it if it could parse arbitrary internet document types, as many browsers can. Minimally, I think some kind of PDF parsing should be a requirement.
