about bit.ly and TinyURL, Google URL Shortener, TUQ Feb 2013

I like that Bit.ly enables custom url's. It also has a good interface for seeing stats if that is of interest.. Small TinyURL iconTinyURL also allows for customization of the URL ending.

A very good comparison of nearly all URL-shorteners I found in german language:
http://hjacob.com/blog/2009/07/url-shortener-redirects/
There I have found a the very useful online URL-shortener, where you can FREELY CHOOSE the NAME of a SHORT-URL ending with *.tk:
http://alternativeto.net/desktop/tk-it/
Such individually named short-URLs will be deleted, if there a less than 25 page views to it during 90 days.
You can download a exe-file for Windows installation and Microsoft Internet Explorer. But Installation did not work with my Vista 64 bit. I tested the online URL-generation and it worked well and is very easy to use: http://www.tkit.tk
