    Thank you. I was getting tired of copying into Google Chrome to shorten urls.

    You could have used TinyURL, could you have not?

    Actually, the only one I was familiar with was Chrome.

    Just go to TinyURL and drag their bookmarklet to your Safari bookmarks bar. Then click the bookmarklet when you are on a page you want to shorten the URL.

    Thanks, I installed Shortly. It works very well and its icon is very unobtrusive on the toolbar.
