Great for creating links, but wish to the ability to manage other links via the same extension.

One of the best tools I have. The service is first class and response time is immediate. I recommend this extension very highly. Love it.

Great service, the Chrome extension makes creating short links super fast and easy. Then I can easily use the web app or mobile app to update the destination if I need to in the future. I've used Rebrandly for a few years now, I get a ton of value for free, and would recommend it to anyone.
