Is there a Chrome plugin that does what Text Link does for Firefox (linkifies links)?

You could... just select the text, right click and then say goto <url> – Sathya Oct 26 '10 at 16:42
On the topic of Firefox text-to-link extensions, I'm quite fond of Linkification – Corey Oct 26 '10 at 16:53

Try Linkification

enter image description here

Linkification is inspired by the Firefox extension of the same name. It parses plain-text links on webpages and replaces them with actual hyperlinks. It is based on the 'Linkfy' bookmarklet.

Next time try to add at least 'some' information. Just posting a link doesn't tell us whether the solution you're linking to is any good. – Ivo Flipse Mar 26 '12 at 14:42

BProd(uctive) seems like what you're looking for.

Linkify Text URL's: Scans all text on loaded pages and makes non-clickable urls clickable and link them to the target url. On click url loads in new tab/window

Does this work ?

It looks good, but appearantly it doesn't handle file URL (e.g. "http://///fileserver/Files/SomeFile.txt" which links to UNC \\fileserver\Files\SomeFile.txt) – ripper234 Oct 26 '10 at 17:10
Isn't that because that's a faulty address to start with? @ripper234 – Ivo Flipse Oct 26 '10 at 17:16
@Ivo - no, try putting it in an 'a href' tag and it works. – ripper234 Oct 27 '10 at 17:38
Updated @ripper – Sathya Oct 27 '10 at 18:33
Doesn't seem to work. The author of BProd said he will add support for file links in about a week. – ripper234 Oct 28 '10 at 9:07
