URL shortening in Ubiquity for Opera too…

Given the cool recent activity around url shortening in Opera, I thought I could also give my small contribution.

In fact, a url shortening command is missing in Ubiquity for Opera. Or rather, it was missing.

There's a new command, shorten-url, based on bit.ly's API, that allows you, as usual with Ubiquity commands, to shorten the current open tab URL, or shorten any URL you type in the Ubiquity window. Here you can see a screenshot as example:

This new command also uses the amazing ajax-enabling UserJS library by xErath. Another interesting news is that from now on, I'll use YUI Compressor to also ship a minified version of the ubiquity javascript code, that almost halves the size, so that's good, since we're already at ~80kb uncompressed.

As usual, you can download Ubiquity for Opera,
(or the minified version), or go to the Ubiquity for Opera github repository.

Enjoy :-)
