Instantly shorten links with goo.gl, copy them to your clipboard, and generate QR codes.
ShortenMe allows you to shorten URLs with goo.gl, copy them to the clipboard, and generate QR codes of them all in one click. In addition, you can securely connect your Google Account to this extension so that you can manage your shortened links and get statistics on the goo.gl website. It's simple, fast, and completely free.
The QR codes that ShortenMe generates are very useful for opening links on mobile devices. If you want to copy the link of the QR code to share with someone else, simply click on the QR code image and it'll automatically be copied to the clipboard.
ShortenMe can also be activated by a customizable keyboard shortcut. If you want to set one up, just right click on ShortenMe's icon and choose Manage. Then, scroll down and click on the Keyboard Shortcuts link to assign a shortcut.
The latest version of this extension was released on July 25, 2013. It slightly enlarged the popup to fit longer URLs, improved the action icon, and switched to the new activeTab permission. ShortenMe continues to use the official Google URL Shortener API and OAuth 2.0 to authorize your account.
