About this Add-on
Based on our brand-new web service Unshorten.it, we offer several advantages over other services:
- Doesn't rely on URL shortener API services, so is far more reliable and will work with nearly all URL shortening services.
- Provides a safety rating based on data from WOT and HPHosts to ensure that the site is safe.
- Provides a screenshot of the website so you can judge the content for yourself without actually visiting.
- Although the context menu will appear for all URLs, if you try to expand a URL that isn't shortened in any way you will likely hit an error message.
- AdF.ly links are incompatible with this service - This is due to the way in which they redirect users and cannot be solved on our end.
Used a different function to retrieve URLs, original function was incorrect and did not work correctly on some websites such as Twitter due to the way links are formatted.
Changed the URL that the extension opens as the existing one was for an old version of the application so the server simply redirected to the correct URL, this eliminates the need for the redirect.
