Untiny is an online service which tells you the original link of any tiny URL before opening it. But it becomes very hard if you want to see actual links hidden behind a series of short url’s.

So, Untiny has introduced UntinyFox add-on for Firefox users. This is a very handy add-on as it extracts the original url’s from tiny url’s and shows them automatically.
