Description from store Did you ever feel annoying when shortening a GitHub URL with Git.io (see http://git.io/help), by typing `curl -i` manually? Let's do it within our browser! When you visiting a GitHub.com page, click the "git.io" button at the end of the address bar, and a shortened URL will be popped out immediately. I know you want to copy it to your clipboard. No problem, just click on the text box!

  • (2013-07-25) Pedro Freitas: I like this extension. The only problem with it is that it only works with a single github tab open in the current browser window. If you have two tabs with GH pages, the git.io icon does no appear next to the omni bar.

  • (2015-04-17, v:0.5.0) Art Wang: One click copy
    Can you do one click copy? Seems that I need to copy the link to a box and then authorize it. Too much clicks on an easy simple action. Takes too much time.
