Confusing (may be less) Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It is fine to right-click on a link on the page and copy the short URL, but I have not been able to find a way to shorten the current page URL. Also, why do I see http://mzl.la/ instead of http://bit.ly/ although I put a check mark next to "Use bitly shortening"?
If I find the answers to these I may revise my rating, but currently it is not of much use to me.
Addendum after developer reply, thus (may be less) addition to the title:
I see how it can be done now, but it need not be that hidden. On the second point, I stand corrected.Based on the current state of usability, I will increase my rating by one more star to 3. If you could add a button on the toolbar which can be used to copy the current URL I will revisit the review. Copying the shortened current URL should be simpler than looking for an empty spot on the page, right-clicking, then choosing the copy option.
Thank you for quickly replying.
Addendum 2: I have just seen the button on the status bar. If it were there all along, part of the fault lies with me for not seeing it. But part of the fault lies with the instructions under "More" and those added by the developer. Why do I need to click on an empty spot on the page while you could have pointed me to the button!
Ok, I am upping the rating to 4 stars. I hope this review may compel the developer to add better instructions and point at the button to copy the current page URL. That is a gross oversight.
It does nothing on New York Times site nytimes.com Rated 3 out of 5 stars
It would be a better one if it did not have glaring omissions like NY Times.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1-signed).
