Are there any plugins or third party apps/add-ons/extensions in Firefox, Chrome, or any other browser which shortens copied URLs on the go?

You could try the bookmarlet for bit.ly (a URL shortening service):

There's also a Firefox add-on for previewing shortened URLs:

You could also try Shorten URL - a Firefox add-on that shortens URLs for many other shortening services:

Thanks! but the FF add-on doesn't work in 4.0.1 version –  Romil N Jun 17 '11 at 11:08
    
Added another FF add-on which covers many different URL shortening services- see main text. –  misterjaytee Jun 17 '11 at 11:15
