In org capture, it's possible to capture the URL of a webpage in EWW, and then store the link in an .org file.

My question is:

Is there a general way to copy the URL of the current page into the clipboard/kill ring, so that one can later paste the URL into any mode, not just into org-mode?

As always, C-hm tells you about the major mode and its keybindings, where we can see:

w        eww-copy-page-url

Which will "Copy the URL of the current page into the kill ring."

w is usefully similar to the standard M-w for copying text, so should be easy to remember on that account.
