Today we're going to learn how to quickly and easily shorten, customise, and share any links you want as: branded links - all with the Rebrandly chrome extension.! 

Hey everyone, I'm Sean Connolly here with Rebrandly.com and today I'm going to show you how handy the Rebrandlyextension is for shortening and rebranding your links on the fly. 

So to do this you're going to need a Rebrandly account - no worries if you don't have one, it's super simple to set up & can be done in a matter of minutes. Once you've done that, from the dashboard we'll click on the ‘Apps' tab.

As you can see we've a nice selection of integrations to choose from. If Chrome isn't your thing, no worries at all - we also have a Firefox extension, as well as a bookmarklet for nearly all other browsers. So you're all covered! 

But today, we're focusing on the Chrome extension. So once we click that, we are given the option “Add to Chrome” - as you can see I've already done so (would have been pretty embarrassing if not).

Google Chrome Extensions – How to Install And Use Them

Chrome Extensions allow developers to create apps that add functionality to Google Chrome web browser. They are similar to plugins used in Mozilla Firefox web browser.

What Is A Chrome Extension?

When you visit a site using Chrome, there may be several options available to you. One of them is to save the page to your computer for later viewing. Another is to open a new window. Yet another is to search for something specific on the Internet. All of these actions require a mouse click. But what if you could perform them without lifting a finger? That’s where Chrome extensions come in.

Chrome extensions are small programs that run inside the browser. They can automate common tasks such as opening a new tab, saving a webpage to disk, searching the Internet, etc. The best part is that they work across multiple websites. This means that you can use them even when you aren’t on the website that originally created them.

The process of creating Chrome extensions is fairly straightforward. First, you must register with the Chrome Web Store. Next, you must write code that runs within the context of the browser. Finally, you upload the resulting file to the store. Once you do this, anyone who visits the site you registered with can install your extension.
