8 Ways to Shorten URLs

Mike Gunderloy of Web Worker Daily gives us a run down of 8 different URL shorteners, and highlight of their features.

Mike's list includes a couple I see frequently, such as TinyURL and urlTea. A couple other less well known ones are is.gd and Shorty. Shorty being a run it yourself tool.

This article is a great heads up to introduce you to URL shortening services; I recommend checking it out and finding one you like.

As a heads up, TinyURL has a Firefox extension for generating TinyURLs. There are more than likely extensions for others on the list.

What's missing? There are quite a few other shorteners out there. Mike picked these as representative, so don't feel slighted if you don't see your favorite. Share it with us in a comment!
