If you are looking for a way to create your own short URLs with but without installing the Google Toolbar, here’s a quick bookmarklet for you: This Page! < — bookmarklet

Simply drag this link into your browser’s bookmark toolbar (or add to favorites in IE) and you’re done. The bookmarklet will even work in Safari and Opera browsers that are otherwise not supported by the Google Toolbar. See instructions on how to install bookmarklet on iPad or iPhone.
