TinyURL is a handy online tool that shortens internet addresses to make them easier to remember and more convenient for emails, IM and social networks.
Using TinyURL couldn’t be easier. Simply copy and paste the web address you want to shorten in the text field and click the Make TinyURL! button. The generated URL is a combination of letters and numbers, but you can also pick an alias for it to make it more readable. These aliases are only available once, however, meaning you won’t be able to choose a word someone has used before.
TinyURL also includes a special feature that lets you preview shortened URLs before actually visiting the website they point to – which is handy if you don’t entirely trust the source of those links.
Say goodbye to never-ending web addresses with TinyURL .
