1- Copy command has two modes,"Copy location bar content" which is the default mode OR "Copy the URL of the current displayed page".
Now here's the trick:
You can switch the mode on the fly by holding the CTRL key while clicking on the "Copy icon".
if your location bar contains http://tinyurl.com/1 and the Real page URL is http://www.somesite.com/
using the "default settings" Clicking on the "Copy" icon will give you "http://tinyurl.com/1" but
if you hold the CTRL key Clicking on the "Copy" icon will give you "http://www.somesite.com/"
You can change the default mode using the settings dialog.
2- Hold the ALT key while clicking on the Copy icon to send the URL using your default email client.
3- Hold the SHIFT key while clicking on the Copy icon to get the formatted URL copied to clipboard.
4- Hold the ALT key while clicking on the TinyURL icon to send the shortened URL using your default email client.
