Let’s face it, we tweet a lot. Most of us have a great habit of sharing any interesting article we come across. And I am sure you are already aware of quite a few browser tricks to quickly grab the page URL, add a comment and share on Twitter.

- It lacks options and adds “via @Statusus” to your update:
TwitterBar allows to update your Twitter stream right from the status bar. It adds a little bird icon to your browser URL bar – click it to post the current URL to Twitter (you can set it to confirm the update with you every time you click it):
It works via Twitter auth, shortens the link and adds “Currently browsing” to it (by default):
This behavior is customized via the tool settings though:
- You can use any phase to go in the post as well as use $$ placeholder for the current page title:
- You can select the shortener;
Twitter Share This Page

All in all, it requires two clicks: one on the icon in the address bar and one to post the update:
