This is my favorite script :)

 
Chris Heath Scriptwright

what about other sites that shorten urls?
is.gd is becoming more popular, as are others
is there an easy way to modify this script to work with other shorteners?

maybe there's another script i haven't found that already does this...
... anyone?

This is a very cool script and it works. So far I have had to use an redirect checker, fx.: http://www.webconfs.com/redirect-check.php when I was suspicious about tinyurls.

Just to bad that the script doesn't have any Linkification support: The tinyurl text link which Linkification converts into clickable links, doesn't show a tooltip when hovering over them :(, so for them I still has to use http://www.webconfs.com/redirect-check.php
Would be nice if someone could make a redirect checker which supported checking for all redirecting links via: http://www.webconfs.com/redirect-check.php

@Mithrandir:
Danke schön! :)

@norz: Try

if (match) {
// replace href with real url:
 link.href = match[1];
// replace text with real url:
 link.firstChild.nodeValue = match[1];
}

Can it be modified to even change the url text to the source url?
This would be useful when display a page in twitter with lots of tinyurls in it...
Note: the Annotate links script can add foot notes as text for links in the document, but it's less convenient when just browsing.

An adaptation with more XPath and less JS, as my provider is blocking tinyurl.org: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/11410

Nice script! I changed this line:
if (match) {
link.title = match[1];
}

into

if (match) {
link.href = match[1];
}

now the link itself is "fixed".

Great idea! Thanks.

I'm undecided as to which is better - the script or the name !!!
