Image from store Chromerly URL-shortener
Description from store We all hate those long auto-generated links that we see every day. So I made this simple extension to easily shorten those links and making sharing things a breeze. Features: * Simple icon to click to shorten tab's url * Context menu to shorten page, image, link, selection, video or even audio urls * Urly keyword in the omnibox to shorten any url you want * NEW: You can now block shortened links and redirect to info page instead! * NEW: Chromerly now supports Web Intents! If you want to know exactly how this extension works, take a look at the source code! This is an open source project.

  • (2019-10-05) bahrta sai: It does what it says but isn't necessary (No offense to dev). You can do the simple shortening with a bookmarklet. Add the following link (below === ) to your bookmarks bar, & click it to shorten the link as you would with the extension icon. You WON"T be able to shorten something from the context menu using the bookmarklet. you can also type tny.im/ before http part in address bar & hit enter OR go to tny.im to shorten a url manually. tny.im also supports custom short urls. === javascript:void(window.open('https://tny.im/index.php?format=simple&action=shorturl&url='+escape(location.href)))
  • (2017-01-20) Shortens URLs, open source code on github - works well but Twitter blocks tweets when using this for short codes.
  • (2015-08-05) ivanov. sasa: Неудобное расположение кнопки!
  • (2013-08-01) Carsten Hagemann: Doesnt work at all. For example, I made google.de to http://urly.fi/8Tz and when I open the link some finnish stuff appears and nothing happens then.
  • (2011-11-01) Nuno Freitas: Really good extension. I would prefer if the desktop notification would go away after a couple of seconds (or be configurable at least). Now I have to do one extra step to close the notification, because I don't use the QR code.
