@l1am0 This should be a Firefox extension!
@stevenroose Already thought about that, as a webextension would be a low hanging fruit. But currently I see one problem: How to know which urls to send to unshort.link:
1) Send all urls <= Privacy nightmare
2) Extensions has a list of known short link providers <= Would limit the extension to this ones, even if unshort.link can work with more than in the list
Both ideas are not working IMO. Do you have a solution/idea how to fix this problem in an extensions?
@l1am0 I was more thinking that the unshorten logic the app currently uses could be put into the extension. So the extension can unshorten & untag all links locally without having to call a service.
I've actually some time ago considered trying to write an add-on that would remove all the tracking information from links.
@l1am0 Eh yeah I think I understood the unshorten logic wrong.
That kind of extension is what I wanted! Thanks!
