Shorten links with bit.ly right in the Chrome address bar
I was busy installing the Google Chrome bit.ly extenstion one day when I noticed an interesting autofill pop up in the address bar.
search bit.ly: enter query. All I had to do was type
bit.ly <tab> <paste link> <enter>. Chrome takes you right to bit.ly and shows you the shortened URL.
Works great, no addons required! Nice and fast.
