If phoenix takes as an argument an URL, you could add this to your

bind P colon exec phoenix

when you hit C-t P you'll get an input box with 'exec phoenix' already
typed, then you just type in the url and press enter. That's a nice
quick hack, anyway. If you put a space at the end of the line, I
*think* that space will be part of the keybinding and will save you
typing a space everytime.
