Hi Matthew - I've updated my blog post ( http://goo.gl/rZg1 ) to show this new bookmarklet - Thanks for the fix - It works in my Iron Chrome browser now, previously it did not.
Abruptly stopped working for me in both Chrome and Iron. The alert-box goo.gl bookmarklet still works though.
This is as of 7/11/2010, by the way.
On second thought, even the alert box one has stopped working on any page except this one.
Sounds like it's too popular?
Might not be a bad idea to email Matt over at http://ggl-shortener.appspot.com/instructions/
Far too popular..
Good while it lasted.
I think I'll look at your code to see if I can develop something on my own that is less likely to be ruined by it's own popularity. ;)
Thanks for the head-start and good luck!
Was working fine in both Chrome and Firefox 4 Beta 6, but suddenly stopped working altogether in both (as of 11/18/10). Deleted both, reapplied, still not working.
Well, as of today (11.19.10), I reinstalled in FF 4 Beta 7, and it's working again. Also in Chrome.
This bookmarklet may work on and and off. The problem is that it relies on a free Google apps account and the quota is usually exceeded. It is a victim of its own success.
A solution is this alternative bookmarklet: http://marklets.com/goo.gl.aspx
It may not be as elegant (you must leave the current page), but it doesn't suffer from any limitations.
