How to See Full URL in Shortened Links

See Through Shortened URLs With This Chrome Extension

You already know the dangers of clicking on links from people you don't know, and have a right to be wary of clicking on shortened links in fear of contracting a nasty computer virus. If you're using Chrome (and a lot of you are), you can download a handy extension that lets you see the entire URL just by hovering over the link.

Called View Thru, install this add-on, hover over any shortened link (from ow.ly, bit.ly, post.ly, and tinyurl.com among others), and you'll instantly see the source link. Handy, fast, and totally helpful for Internet worrywarts.
