How to use it ?
Simply browse web pages. When you visit a new web page, this script contact the LongURL API servers for shortened URL found in the page, and modify the links so that you see something like [VIDEO] Official Tutorials - Battlefield Heroes rather than http://is.gd/1eNEq *
Also notice the URL that appears in the task bar when you move your mouse over the link, or in the tooltip that appears.
This way you know where you'll get if you click the link ;)
What is cool ?
- Replace unreadable URL by the title of the corresponding web page
- Translate the shortened URL with the correct URL, as soon as the page load : no "expand function" or loading tooltip !
- 208 services supported
- Modify the link (a.href)
- Work with asynchronous transfers (ajax)
=>This means your browser won't call the url shortener website when you'll click the link. This is voluntary, because thoses services are useless and dangerous : obfuscation act like a third DNS resolver.
At last but not least : working on Opera browser.
Tested on Opera 10.00 Beta, but should also work in 9.64.
This script was designed to work mainly for Opera.
