TinyURL implements "Preview Feature"

Recently I wrote about the potential danger in services like TinyURL and SnipURL being used to hoist off malware. While this is not a major “run-for-the-hills” threat, you can read some of the reasonings here.

Well, TinyURL recently came out with a “Preview” feature, which lets you preview the link before going to it. Smart move.

For example, a TinyURL link to Sunbelt Software would look like this in the Preview feature:

It’s a start.
