Easily shortening any URL on GitHub.com with Git.io.
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! And finally, here comes the source code: https://github.com/chitsaou/git-io-shortener === Changelog: v0.5.1: - Support *.github.com, *.github.io and *.githubusercontent.com - Switched to https://git.io v0.5.0: - Support help.github.com. v0.4.0: - Deal with error status from git.io - Click-to-copy procedure refactored v0.3.0: - Support for raw.github.com, developer.github.com and develop.github.com v0.2.0: - Support for gist.github.com v0.1.0: - Shorten github.com with git.io service - Click the result text box to copy to clipboard

- (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.

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.
