CreateRedirect is a special page extension that eases creation of redirects. It displays a form that only asks for the origin page and the destination page, and then saves the page. It also adds a menu item to the side "toolbox" menu as a shortcut, and is able to pass through the current article's title through that shortcut to fill in the destination field automatically. It's convenient and great for batch edits!
