Editors' review

This Firefox add-on brings the capability to TinyURLize any Web page to your toolbar and menubar. Accessible from the Tools menu or as an added toolbar icon, it'll save you time from having to go to TinyURL.com to create a shortened URL. TinyURL Creator also offers several additional features that work expand on the utility of the TinyURL concept.

Click on the toolbar button to create a TinyURL for the Web site you're looking at, which then gets automatically copied to your clipboard. From the drop-down menu that's available, though, you can save TinyURLs so your clipboard remains clutter-free, and you can create a TinyURL from a page that you're not even looking at using the Create New feature.

Unfortunately, the latest feature in TinyURL Creator, a mouse-over tooltip that should automatically expand an embedded TinyURL on any Web page so you can see where it leads, did not work during our tests. Still, that's an ancillary feature and did not affect the primary uses of the plug-in. Recommended.
