With Bitly's browser extension, you can add Bitly to your Chrome toolbar and quickly shorten a URL without leaving the page.
To install the Bitly Chrome extension:
- In your Chrome browser, go to the Bitly extension in the Chrome Web Store.
- Click Add to Chrome.
- Select Add Extension.
When the extension is installed, the Bitly icon appears in your Chrome toolbar. If it's not in the toolbar, click the extensions icon (a puzzle piece), then click the pin icon next to the Bitly extension.
