I'm not sure if my version of the module is exactly the same as the
latest beta, but the module should be able to handle request such as

	t=article, % I sometimes use "webpage"
\url{http://www.pragma-ade.com} % or u= inside the square brackets
\lastchecked{some date}

and then you can produce the url with \cite[url][pragma]. Currently
there's no support for hyperlinks yet. It would be great if \cite[url]
would give directly the hyperlinked version of the url (perhaps there
could be an option for web addresses: active=yes|no), but Taco
mentioned a while ago that the module would need quite some rewriting
in order to support that.

However, currently you can get active links with something like this:

\getcitedata [url] [pragma] to \pragmaascii
