YOURLS comes with two handy bookmarklets for easier link shortening. These tools will only work if you have a BETA account on oss.li to request a beta account tell us how you would use it.

The bookmarklets will take you to a page where you can easily edit or delete your brand new short URL.

There is also a Quick Share tool box to make posting to Twitter, Facebook or Friendfeed a snap.

If you want to share a description along with the link you're shortening, simply select text on the page you're viewing before clicking on your bookmarklet link
