Automatic fetch title from pasted external link

I want an easy way to insert an external link in markup format. When I insert a link from the clipboard, it is converted to a link with a header from the page: Obisidian fetches the title of that link.
You can see how it works in Bear app.

@kiriyo, meanwhile you could take a look at a browser-side option that copies URLs in the formats you want. This would also give you a little more flexibility to work with your notes outside Obsidian.

Example:
I already used the Template Chrome extension (templat.com) to copy links in Markdown format with the page title. For Obsidian, I added a template to capture selected text from a page and build a citation note with all the frontmatter that I usually want:

---
author: {author}
title: {title}
container: 
other_contributors: 
version: 
number: 
publisher: {base}
publication_date: 
source_location: {url}
accessed: {dateTime}
---

{selectionMarkdown}
