When you click a shortened URL, do you know where it leads? All URL redirections (including URL shortening) should be transparent. Before you decide to click on a link, you should be able to know where it leads. So you can decide whether you actually want to open it, now that you're able to see it's destination.
Simply select “Quo Vadis?” from the context menu of any link, on any web site. The extension probes the URL and lists all URL redirections it encounters, until the final URL, in a compact popup. Each encountered URL is colored:
Quo Vadis requires no configuration.
- Black: Currently being probed.
- Gray: Redirects to another URL (probed next).
- Red: Redirects to an already encountered URL.
- Orange: Returned an error.
- Green: Final URL, no errors, no redirections.
