E-mailing a website or a link!

A great tip submitted by Rohit Deshpande: E-mailing a website or a link! Before, when I visited a website and I wanted to send that info to someone, I copied the address in the address bar, created an email, pasted the address and added some HTML to transform it into a link. Well there is a much easier way of doing it when using Safari and Mail. You can also send the whole website as an attachment in the e-mail. When you are on the website you want to send, press "Command-I". It will load a new e-mail in Mail and the website will be attached. It looks like this:

You can also press "Shift-Command-I" to create an e-mail with a simple link! Thanks for the great tip Rohit!

I wouldn't want to send it as an attachment, but the latter shortcut will prove worthy...

I couldn't find a keyboard shortcut for Firefox, but while you are on the site you want to send, select File and click Send Link. It will open Mail with the URL that sends as a hyperlink. I don't think you can send an entire website...

Don't know how valuable this may be, but FWIW:

I use Firefox, and usually have to have multiple tabs open. Naturally, when you quit out of Firefox, it does just that — quits — like any good app should. But what about all the tabs, with their relevant sites?

No problem! Simply Force Quit Firefox, the next time you open it, it will politely ask you whether you would like it to restore/resume your previous session.

I'm not using Mail, but when I'm in Safari and I press shift-apple-i it opens my gmail with a new mail with the link in it.

Unfortunateley, apple-i doesn't work.

when I use command-I SAFARI says could not send because ENTOURAGE doesn't support sending pages from SAFARI.

How do I get it to use MAIL instead?

You can get an add on called Tiny URL for Firefox. You can put an icon on the taskbar and click on it to create a shorten link to the website that is automatically copied to the clipboard. You can then just paste it into your email. Or you can control-click (right click) and select the option to create a Tiny Url
