10.6: A New Service to Shorten URLs
Authored by: shhrr8 on Jan 01, '11 02:15:26PM

Why not use Apple's built in URL shortener? For example, in a new Mail message highlight any text and Add Link from the Edit menu or type Command-K. Same for TextEdit. Then just copy and paste the link somewhere. I do this all the time when emailing long links or to embed in my documents. Similar facility exists in Keynotes and Pages and perhaps other applications on your Mac.

10.6: A New Service to Shorten URLs

That's not actually a URL shortener, but rather hypertext and a hypertext link. That is, it's the full URL disguised under some link text, rather than the full URL represented by a shorter URL.
