Copies a minimal link from the address bar into the clipboard.
Linksnip is a Chrome extension that will copy a shortened address for the current page. Ideally, this will support most popular services that have a shortened form (like youtube.com links to youtu.be). This extension does not operate with URL shortening services. It only computes the new URL from the existing one.
In addition to copying shortened links, Linksnip will also remove various tracking parameters from the URL. The result is a much shorter, cleaner link to be shared.
To use, click on the extension button. A shortened URL will be copied into the clipboard. If the extension doesn't know how to shorten a URL, the whole address will be copied.
This extension requires access to :
- your tabs (to get the page address)
- write access to your clipboard (to put the page address in there)
