Make It Short is a URL shortener for Safari. Just click the toolbar button or choose "Make It Short" from a contextual menu, and a shorter URL for the page will pop up. Copy it and paste it anywhere you like-Twitter, Facebook, an email, or whatever.

Here's what's cool about Make It Short:

It stays out of the way: Your short URL pops up at the top of the page. If you copy it with a keyboard shortcut, the bar disappears automatically. You can also dismiss the bar by pressing any other key, or simply ignore it if you're done with the page. Plus if you like to keep your Safari toolbar clean, you can remove the more...

One Word: Awesome!

To make it even more awesome, add ...

1. a preference to automatically copy the short URL to the clipboard (in which case the popup doesn't show)
2. a (changeable) keyboard-shortcut in the preferences to shorten URLs that are highlighted

Version 1.3

To clarify #1. above:

I was referring to the popup-window not the popup-bar.

In some cases (I'm running Safari 5.0.5) when using the extension I get a popup-window instead of a popup-bar (as in: bar below the toolbar/bookmark-bar).

Also a little glitch/bug: when using Make It Short with tinyurl I can only shorten the URL of the top-level-domain, e.g. when I try shorten a specific link let's say www.wired.com/services/corrections/ the result of the shortened URL is www.wired.com/ and not www.wired.com/services/corrections/

I can thus only shorten one URL within a give domain.
