Hello PixelExit team,

I noticed that in your packages you include a readme file which uses the .url suffix. On OS X, this will automatically open a new browser window, but on Linux (and possibly Windows), it is not a valid file extension type.

Perhaps instead it would be better to package an .html file? In any regards, even something like a .txt file with a URL pasted inside would work better than the Mac-only file.

Thank you!

Ya works on windows fine and mac, didn't think of of Linux to be honest. We opted against an .html file because we wanted to be able to update the readme at any point with everyone having access to the latest. We can look into some options for it though.

Alright, or even making some sort of thread that contains the URL to wherever the file points to would be nice for the obscure number of Linux users. I know I'm just a minority so I know it's not much of a priority for you, but any kind of general resolution would be nice, in case other users also have similar issues.
