I made a thing!

Linksnip ( is a Chrome extension that copies a minimal URL of the active tab into the clipboard. It doesn't use URL shortening services. It converts youtube links to, amazon links to amzn, etc. If it doesn't have a shortening rule, it just removes any tracking parameters before copying.

Firefox version coming soon!
