Do NOT fear because this add-on is labeled "experimental". It won't be for long. This add on works beautifully! In fact, it works just like the TinyURL add on used to work...from the context menu. For those who want their URL shortener in the address bar, there are other add-ons which work that way. For those who just want to right click anywhere on the page and shorten a url, this is your ticket. A simple interface which works.
Just ignore the java script error box! This addon DOES work. The error box is meaningless. Just close the error box. The URL is there...in your clipboard. Just paste the URL anywhere.
