Can I create a hotkey to open links in currently selected task?

Say my cursor is placed over a task that has a URL attached to it like so:


I would like to have a hotkey that would open this URL or multiple URLs if there are multiple URLs attached to a task in the browser without having to use the trackpad and clicking on the URLs.

If you don’t mind using two keyboard shortcuts, this is possible right now.

In Apple System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Services > Internet > Open URL

…set that to whatever keyboard shortcut you prefer. In my screen shot, I have set mine to ⌘⌥⌃U

So, in your TaskPaper document, with your cursor in the task with the URL(s), type:

⌘⇧B (to select the task)

Then type the shortcut that you set in Apple System Preferences for Open URL.

By the way, this works with multiple URLs in the same task.
