There’s something to be said for simplicity — and brevity. Is.gd has them both, offering users a refreshingly simple, short and easy-to-use URL shortener that doesn’t waste any time getting down to business. Simply paste your URL into the box on the main page, and voila! Your URL is cut down to a super-short is.gd address. Aside from the expected short URLs, is.gd offers some additional features after you’ve shortened your URLs, and these features make is.gd rather unique. A line of text after the shortened Web address tells you just how much the site was able to shorten your address (in the form of a percentage), and a special URL with a “-” at the end gives you a preview page that you can link to; that way people who click the link can see what address they’re navigating to before they actually follow through with it. All that is.gd offers truly is good.
