Shrink your long Web URLs

The web shortcuts are again getting popular and new url-shortening services are available. Few of these are:



1. http://bit.ly/: Probably the most popular because of it analytics offerings. http://j.mp/ is also mapped to bitly.

2. http://is.gd/: Compresses you web address.

3. http://snipurl.com/: offers browser tool bar and API framework also.

4. http://ow.ly: can't understand why it asks for words verification.

5. http://goo.gl/: Google is too in this business.

6. http://cli.gs/: competing with bit.ly, offers tools, social-media monitoring, analytics and APIs.

7. http://saf.li/: says urls are scanned for virus and vulnerable sites.
