There is always a need to send URLs via email, instant messenger or even post on your blog! Many URLs are unweildy and too long to effectively copy and paste without wrapping, loosing their formatting or just looking plain ugly!
Use the bookmarklet below for TinyURL to create shortened URLs whenever you need them. Just right click once and then drag the bookmarklet to your bookmarks or links toolbar. When you are on a page and need to create a TinyURL, just press TinyURL and the website will generate the code for you!
This bookmarklet works on all web browsers, including Firefox and Internet Explorer 7.
