Visit short links with less typing
Short allows you to visit short links created through short-d.com with even less typing, such as visiting https://www.google.com with s/gg in Chrome search box. If you are tired of creating short links for your favorite web pages, just open the page and click on Short's icon. The long link will be automatically filled in! If you are a big fan of Omnibox, you can type s and press tab in the search box to call it out!

On other websites such as the Firebase console for my web development project, I have to type "console.." and there will still be many competing autocomplete options. Saving bookmarks is not my favorite because it clutters the UI. The only website that I can visit easily without this extension is, explain.mit.edu, because I just have to type "e". Overall it's already helpful and has real potential to be a part of my life.
