If you've ever tried to copy and paste a super long URL
, only to have it break once you try to copy it, then the site Tiny URL
is for you. Tiny URL shortens very long URLS into - you guessed it- tiny URL's that are way more manageable, not to mention easier to copy and paste. Here's how it works:
- If you have a long URL, say like this one:
- Open a new tab if you're in Firefox, or a new window if you're in Internet Explorer, and navigate to Tiny URL.
- Simply copy and paste your link into the shorten URL field, press submit, and you're done! Your long URL now looks like this: http://tinyurl.com/oex2e, and has been shortened from 90 characters to a mere 24 characters.
