Version 2.1 adds a few features:
- asynchronous requests, which should be friendly towards performance
- localization! Initial set of languages: en-US, de, es-ES, fr, rm, uk, zh-CN. Contribution of additional languages appreciated: The code is on github.
- New hotkey: Press CMD/Ctrl+Shift+L to make a short URL without using your mouse. Thanks to canuckistani for the contribution!

The add-on is also repackaged with Add-on SDK 1.15, which allows it to work again with the latest Firefox versions.

Version 1.1 133.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 4.0b5pre, Mobile 0.1 - 2.0a1pre

Major changes in version 1.1:
  • Growl notifications when copying a URL. You'll see if a short URL was found or created, and what URL it is. If you don't have Growl (or if your platform does not support it), a 10-second information bar is shown instead.
  • Switch to is.gd as default service, because it's shorter than tinyurl.
  • User-definable short-URL service URL. (Use tinyURL, bit.ly or your own shortening service!) For more information, take a look at the README file.

Version 1.0 111.6 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 - 4.0b3pre, Mobile 0.1 - 2.0a1pre
