Picture this: You are chatting online, and you want to share a cool link to a website you have open, but the address in the bar has cruft and tracking parameters. It would be nicer to share links without all that, but it's a pain to edit out the irrelevant bits. URLs from shortlink services hide the site and sell click tracking data.
In Chrome, the Linksnip extension (https://linksnip.app) will solve your problem! Just click on its button and a trimmed url will be in your clipboard.
