About this Add-on
A number of major websites expose their own short URLs for any entry on their webpages, among these: youtube (“youtu.be/…”), flickr (“flic.kr/…”), Wordpress.com, Arstechnica, Techcrunch, and many more.
If, however, the site does not name its own short URL, the add-on automatically falls back to making a short URL using is.gd (or a user-defined shortening service).
Either way, after a fraction of a second, you end up with a short URL in your clipboard, ready to be used in tweets, emails, forum posts, or wherever else you please.
Feedback is greatly appreciated!
Created with Mozilla's new Web Extension interface.
This add-on is licensed under an Apache license. The source code is available on github. Contributions welcome!
Note: I am not in any way affiliated with is.gd and have chosen their service for the fallback functionality purely arbitrarily because they expose a convenient REST API for me to use.
* Added save indicator in prefs, to reduce confusion if prefs were actually saved.
* Various smaller tweaks.
