I have stumbled on many URL shortener services online to find a best one for me. Here is a short list of most useful and popular URL shrinker services on the web right now.
perhaps the most popular of the web and first of its kind. Preview link is possible and they have Browser Bookmarklet. Its the most basic URL shrinker. The url is not so short because the name "TinyUrl" is itself longer than other services
The new and modern URL shrinker with lots of advanced feature. Include the Tracking of your link and features bookmarklet which will show you an instant sidebar at the right of your browser to make things work easily.If you're a big Twitter fan, Bit.ly even has an option to post to Twitter directly from the site after you compact the URL There is also an Firefox extension which will preview any shrinked url when you hover mouse over them in Firefox.
