Goo.gl URL Shortener Is Now Seriously Keyboard Friendly


Google has made a number of tweaks to its Goo.gl URL shortening service. The one that really grabs me? It now makes it possible to get a URL straight onto the clipboard without stuffing around.

Once Goo.gl has shortened a URL, it now automatically highlights the shortened version of the link, meaning you can hit Control-C and copy it directly to the clipboard. Since the Goo.gl site automatically places focus in the input field, it’s a simple matter of Control-V, Enter, Control-C to get the job done (assuming the URL is already on the clipboard). A simple detail, but a great fix for shortcut junkies like me.
