 This is a valid URL however it should never appear on a "live" web page.
 Even think some browsers restrict such links.

 I like the 8th and 11th regex from there (may need to convert then to JS).
 They are listed as failing to detect some of the numeric URLs but think
 this is a "feature". We don't want to flag URLs to private network
 segments, etc.
