Are you sick of posting URLs in emails only to have it break when sent causing the recipient to have to cut and paste it back together? Then you've come to the right place.

Also helps keep the forum tidy if you need to post a large link. Usually it will make it neccessery to scroll from side to side in order to read the post. Using tinyurl you can chop long links down to a few characters :)

If your using Firefox there is also a plugin that allows you to use tinyurl by just clicking a button on the tool bar

Yep, Firefox has some cool add-ins. However, since I updated to IE 7, I often use that now. Will ave to get into the habit of using FF again!

Not sure about IE7. still has some very serious security issues and I can't see it getting any better as time goes on. Nice look to it though :)
