Due to the abuse of the site by spammers, I was forced to take it offline, so for now the extension does not work. I am considering where to go next with this extension/service.

Xrl.in - Tiny URLs

Xrl.in is a free service that will transform any link no matter how long into one that is short and easily manageable. Short enough to ovoid the age old problem of links breaking in emails.

Extension

Xrl.in Tiny Links places a button in URL box near the go button. This button when clicked changes the URL to the tiny xrl.in version, and by default copies this to the clipboard for easy pasteing. Tiny Links also has the ability to transform in page links by right clicking them and selecting Copy Tiny Link. It can also turn all your tabs into a Link Group.

The extension also overrides Send Link, though this can be turned off via the extension's options window.
