The vast majority of browsers have the ability to copy the URL from
the address bar to the clipboard built in, usually through a keyboard
shortcut (such as Ctrl+C) and a content menu (attached to the right
mouse button, and possible also a specific menu key on the keyboard).

On the other hand, the only way to copy data from a webpage to the
clipboard using scripting works only under Microsoft Internet Explorer
for Windows (and browsers that use its rendering engine), so that
would not be safe to implement.
