The smart URL shortener that shortens your links natively, providing you official short links.
✔ Shorten URLs natively!
(Already supported more than ten official shorteners, including Youtube http://youtu.be, Github http://git.io, Wordpress http://wp.me, Flickr http://flic.kr)
✔ It's also a multi-protocol shortener.
(Using goo.gl, bit.ly, j.mp, etc to shorten if there's no native shortener available)
(You can shorten with your own Google or Bitly account.)
✔ Auto copy to clipboard.
"Read and change all your data on the websites you visit"
➥ Native URL Shortener ONLY retrieves official short links inside the web page! For example, wp.me short links. That's why it needs to request the permission to read all websites...
Please understand that Native URL Shortener is safe and will NEVER get access to any of your personal data.
Native URL Shortener shortens URLs "natively", using the official short links.
If there's no native shorteners available, your favored shortener (Goo.gl, Bit.ly or TinyURL) will shorten it for you.
BTW, you can shorten with your own Google and Bitly account! Just get into the Options Page and connect to your accounts.
Besides clicking on the icon, from version 3.0.0 you can shorten links from the context menu. Context menu items are available for shortening the current webpage, the link selected, or the link to the image under mouse cursor.
** Please note that some official short links (such as wp.me) will not be available while shortening a link inside the webpage, therefore the link address will be shortened by other shortener service (goo.gl or bit.ly).
Note: You can create a keyboard shortcut to activate Native URL Shortener (Follow instructions here http://www.howtogeek.com/?p=127162)
*This extension does not access any of your private data. It simply takes the commanded url.
The idea of "Shorten natively" is inspired by the "Shortly" Safari extension by ZZHC. http://zzhc.org/shortly
Thanks to Shortly‘s developer for sharing Shortly's beautiful icon with Native URL Shortener.
*Flickr hasn't provide official short links for "picture sets".
