Interesting BitcoinMedia article on using URI's for bitcoin, I was wondering how useful this would be? There are terribly long startup times for the current default bitcoin client (I've not tried any other one).

There's lightweight bitorrent clients that start quickly, what about bitcoin?

Any json-rpc frontend would start really quick, although you'll need bitcoind running to do anything useful. still better than a bored user staring at their browser though.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I think that it's already possible to use Bitcoin URI with online wallet.
Gmail already support "mailto:", so I think that it's possible to do the same with Blockchain.info/wallet ( example )

MultiBit supports bitcoin URIs.

I just did a quick test on start up times.  The UI displays in 3 seconds and then there is another 2 seconds to load up the 3 wallets I happened to have in it.   That is on a Macbook of a couple of years vintage.

I do not think startup time will be a problem in the adoption of bitcoin URIs.

The main issue with default client is it merges wallet w/ back end.

IMHO bitcoind should exist as a silent headless service running 24/7 acting as node.  A client (satoshi client or any client) would simply launch on demand, decrypt wallet (as needed), and get balance/confirmation updates from bitcoind or submit new transactions to bitcoind with no lag or delay.

The tight coupling of blockchain functionality and wallet functionality is not optimal.
