When you need to shorten an URL, a service like TinyURL works great.
But when you need to provide multiple URLs in a small space — like I did for a library when there was room for only one link — there are free tools that make it easy to bundle those URLs into just one link. (Good to keep in mind for a post on your library's Facebook page, or for a 140-character tweet.)
Here's my favorite URL-bundling tool, with step-by-step instructions to create your own bundle:
Here's a handy trick to remember, especially if you're viewing websites on a small screen, or if you use extra toolbars that take up some of your browser's "real estate." For example, if you want to get the best view of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2012 page, you may need to have your browser go full-screen.
TL; DR — do you know this slang? It's an abbreviation for Too Long; Didn't Read. And it's the way most people feel about reading Terms of Service (TOS) agreements that we agree to abide by in order to use a service or a website like Google.
Oh, you say you didn't know you'd agreed to the TOS for Google? Well, if you've ever used Google, it means you've agreed, albeit tacitly. ("By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms.")
Most TOS agreements start out by saying "Please read them carefully". Yeah right.
If you've updated your computer's copy of Firefox to version 13, you've probably already noticed when you open a new tab, it doesn't look like the blank page you used to see in older versions. Now, every time you open a new tab, you see thumbnail images of your most-recently and most-frequently visited pages.
If you're not in love with the way each of these looks & functions, the good news is you can customize them to fit your needs.
