Does anyone know of a chrome extension to shorten a URL from the context menu? i.e. Right clicking anywhere on the page and creating/copying the link?

I have switched to Chrome and the tinyUrl plugin does this for FF.

Am I correct in assuming that you've searched on for "url shortening" and haven't found what you need? – ChrisF Feb 3 '10 at 21:26
Yes. I dont want to click the icon in the corner to shorten the URL, I want to do it from the context menu - right clicking anywhere on the page and clicking an option from the menu there. Lots of FF extensions do this..... – barfoon Feb 3 '10 at 22:02
I did the search and didn't come up with anything. 4.0 hasn't been public for that long, so one might come along eventually. Is there a place you can make suggestions for features on one of the existing ones? – ChrisF Feb 3 '10 at 22:47
