Make URLs clickable on build console output UI

Sometimes we would link people to a website in the console output if it's doing some CD stuff but currently we have to highlight and copy the URL and paste it in browser. If it can make it a clickable link, that would be great.

    We have been a bit hesitant to manipulate the output for fear of causing unexpected issues and/or opening up XSS attack vectors. That said, we have talked about some kind of "rich output" where you could explicitly decide to output a snippet of markdown or something like that, which would probably accommodate most cases like the one you're describing. As of now that is an "idea" rather than a plan, so I can't commit to it.
