PeekURL.com is a URL shortener that always gives a preview of the destination link. That way recipients don't have to worry about clicking a mysterioso link and being sent to a "bad" site.
That means one extra click, but it also means more peace of mind.
PeekURL also plays Youtube, MTV, and MySpace videos directly in the page.
You can create a shortened URL using an icon in the add-on bar or using an item in the context menu. The context menu item operates on the page as a whole or on individual links in the page. After a link is created, it's copied to your clipboard.
On the Options pane you can set:
- Whether to show notifications or not.
- Whether to show the add-on bar icon or not.
- Whether to show a "goodbye" message or not (if you don't like the add-on or the service, please let me know why).
- The keyboard shortcut to use, if any.
