Copy ShortURL - Firefox Addon - Currently, a number of major websites expose their own short URLs for any entry on their webpages, among these: youtube (“youtu.be/…”), flickr (“flic.kr/…”), Arstechnica, Techcrunch, and many more.
On any webpage, this Firefox add-on adds a new item in the right click menu called “Copy Short URL”. When you click it, the add-on looks for a canonical short URL exposed in the page header.
If, however, the site does not name its own short URL, the add-on automatically falls back to making a short URL using tinyurl.com.
Either way, after a fraction of a second, you end up with a short URL in your clipboard, ready to be used in forum posts, tweets, or wherever else you please.

- Updated compatibility with the latest Firefox 4 betas. Built on the latest Addon SDK
What's New in 1.3:
