I've recently used the Opera browser because it's now faster than Google Chrome. But the problem is I can't make short URLs as fast as possible, because the URL shortener for Opera is a widget that runs outside Opera. Do you have a better idea on how to shorten URLs in Opera the fastest way?
I found a quick "tuto" regarding that, here is the link:
Method 1: Shorten URLs via the Opera address bar using custom search It’s easy to create a custom search in Opera. But here I prove you can use it for more than searching! Create a custom search that posts to http://is.gd/create.php using URL=%s as your query string.
Click OK, and you can now create a shortened URL directly from the Opera address bar by typing u and hitting Enter, assuming you used “u” as the shortcut key. Here is my original blog post with more detailed instructions: http://my.opera.com/BAMAToNE/blog/2009/10/04/how-to-shorten-urls-from-the-opera-address-bar Method 2: Shorten URLs via custom Opera button
After my blog post became famous (thanks, Espen!), Opera Community member mistressEVIL furthered my idea and showed us a way to shorten URLs using a custom button. I think it’s a great idea because not everyone is comfortable customizing Opera the way I have shown. But using a custom button is easy because it just takes a click.
