User reviews
The best link shortener of the whole lot. I have used many of link shortener extensions and I shorten links all day long - and without doubt, this is the FASTEST and simplest of them all. The creation of the new bitly links is almost instantaneous and the link is copied to the clipboard as the small bottom notification appears. It beats all the others in speed and efficiency hands down. Well done!
