Bit.ly, my URL shortener of choice have kindly created a little Google gadget which makes it nice and easy to shorten URL’s you’re about to insert into a gmail email. This keeps your emails nice and clean but also ensure that long url’s don’t end up broken once they arrive in your recipients inbox.

  1. Go to Settings > Labs
  2. Scroll down to the very bottom and click the radio button to enable “Add any gadget by URL”
  3. Click “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page
  4. You should now have a gadgets tab at the top of the settings page. Click it.
  5. In the Add a gadget by its URL:” box paste this link:
