Is.gd is my favourite url shortening service. Recently I noticed tunyurls are not tiny anymore due to the fact that Twitter default url shortener is tinyurl.
is.gd has a basic api that can be used to create urls just by clicking a single bookmarklet. This is how i created a bookmarklet:
1. In firefox right-click on the bookmark toolbar and select New Bookmark...
2. Now in the next dialog box enter the following in the Location field:
javascript:location.href="http://is.gd/api.php?longurl="+location.href;

Done! Next time you want to shorten a long url just click on the bookmarklet and you will be greeted with the shortened url. ;)
