The workflow takes the url of the active safari tab, and copies it to the clipboard.
If you want it also throws the the page title in there.
If you have selected some text, it tries to recognize that and takes that instead of the page title.
It also can directly paste that whole string.
That's it. Tremendously helpful for IM conversations or as a starting point for a Tweet.
I have bound it like this
CMD Option U to copy URL
CMD Option Shift U to paste URL
CMD Option K to copy Page Title and URL
CMD Option Shift K to paste Page Title/Selected Text and URL
Originally created by Michael Matochkin, I adapted the workflow over time and now publish it here. Original credits in the readme: Based on Alfred extensions by Luca Soldaini (original applescript by Dr. Drang) and Zibity
I've used an icon from the Stylistica Icon Set
That should cover it. And of course: here is the UPDATED workflow download link (see my latest comment for more info)
