I'm a bit confused here, as you say you have a browser plugin (which would
by definition make it browser specific)?

It sounds like you have a Firefox plugin that locates phone numbers on a
web page and turns them into clickable links that make a VoIP connection
(you don't say what plugin you have, although I have seen Skype plugins
that do this). If so then the likelihood is that you're going to need to
find a similar plugin for the other browsers that you want to support
(which may or may not exist).

Creating tel: links (as per David's comment) may work if the user has
something configured to handle them and may be a more generic solution
(provided you can find a suitable handler for tel: links).

I think more detail is needed in general here.
