Certainly you are right, but then you have to press SHIFT wait a second (to avoid tripple clicking) and then you have to click again to deselect the face (since you only want the edges be selected). It would be much more convenient to have a curve-only selection tool that even can select the edges of a clicked face.

A quick way for this: select outer edges (Chris Fullmer) with a shortcut assigned

I use Selection Toys to quickly filter out entity types. I have Edges on Ctrl+1 and Faces on Ctrl+2, Groups and Components on Ctrl+3 and Ctrl+4.
Then I have Ctrl+Shift+n to deselect. Those shortcuts are easily accessible to my left hand which is always on the keyboard while I model. Quite flexible setup.

Nice, I change my hotkeys to use this setup too. But I think it would be very intuitive to have the normal select operation (which selects the face first) and a curve-based select operation (which forcly grabs the edges even if applied on faces). Since the "Select Curve" plugin currently doesn't operate at all on faces it would be just a nice addition that makes the "Select Curve" tool a little bit more powerful.

Hello @thomthom, thank you very much for this very usefull plugin.

Is there a way to add a modified cursor? (I can draw it if you tell me the specifications.)
