It does not work in Opera sadly.
@author, can you fix this ? thx.
An all-in-one tinyurl decoder script fully functional with firefox. What could you want more? Thanks for the wonderful script. Keep up the updates(I'm amazed that you updated it everyday). Give it a star 5 rating because it's worth it.
L.E: DOES NOT WORK IN OPERA
I love what this extension offers, but the cost is too high for me to leave the script enabled!
I'm delighted to see that there's caching code in tinyURL decoder, but it still has a way of really hammerring firefox with web traffic that doesn't always serve me...
Especially after recovering a large session, TinyURL decoder traffic is quite a bandwidth/CPU burden...
1. Is it possible to cache urls in a database across browser restarts?
2. Is it possible to handle short-urls more lazily? Loading the links onMouseOver or when the tab is first viewed? (I imagine that this would be load-dependent...with some sort of latency-trigger for aborting prefetch when the browser is too busy.)
I would love some sort of top-level extension that packs shortened URLs into the main browser history database...(or perhaps a 2nd url-mapping history db with a different lifetime)..
What happened to the "unshorten" extension, and might that be a better vehicle for maintaining cache/history/mouseover-laziness??
I wanted to request you modify the script to use our official API for decoding bit.ly URLS, which looks like this:
This is a good tool for following all the short urls people post in the comments section of my Gaming Blog. 4 stars (would be 5 if creator updated it!)
I don't use it but it was very well written.
Niceone. Can you add pburl. It should automatically forward to original url.
eg: http://pburl.com/0d001f TO http://rapidshare.com/files/367314557/dnz-niass...
this is brilliant, now we know what exactly the shortened links are taking us.
also, could you add a feature that shows the shortened URL, then have the actual URL in parentheses?
example: www.cli.gs/dfdfcs (www.youtube.com/blanblahj)
If you use Twitter a lot, or just go anywhere that uses URL shorteners often, then you realize how much of a pain it can be to be sent somewhere without knowing for sure where you're going.
This script fixes that, giving you the safety and security you need these days, with how many unscrupulous people there are out there.
I'd definitely recommend this to anyone at all for making sure your browsing experience is as smooth as possible.
