If you work with URL's with any frequency, Short Menu makes the shortening of URL's dead simple. You know how long they can become, making e-mails unreadable, making markup look like it was attacked by a two-year-old, and making your life generally miserable. There are also occasions when you just don't want to put your domain, or the path to a file, out there for just anyone to parse--especially if the document or e-mail may pass near some ill-meaning bot.
You can set a keyboard shortcut to open the menu-bar panel, and set a second keyboard shortcut for Quick Short, which shortens the URL on the clipboard. The Auto Short feature automatically shortens any URL copied to the clipboard for instant results.
We at MacUpdate are constantly dealing with long urls, which can be cumbersome or error-prone. The developer of Short Menu has made our Content Editing team very happy by providing a reliable tool with a smooth, seamless workflow for creating shortened URL’s.
With support for fifteen services, blacklists and whitelists, the ability to define custom shortening services, and options for notification, Short Menu may be just the thing you need to prevent a shortened temper.
