Previewing the URL of a TinyUrl

Nowadays, many of us use TinyURL s instead of using long urls for the ease of use. Think that a site you visited has a tiny url like http://tinyurl.com/c8yvgr. We can not directly say whether this tiny url links to a good site or a porn site or a other malicious site by looking at given tiny url . But now you can preview the actual URL before visiting the target site using a feature provided by http://tinyurl.com. What you have to do is go to http://tinyurl.com/preview.php and then click on the link Click here to enable previews. After enabling that, each time you click on a tinyURL, it will first show the preview of actual url and then you can proceed as you wish. You can later disable the preview settings using the same page.
