Show full URL's for bit.ly and goo.gl in Chrome and Firefox Web Browsers
Often I avoid clicking on shortened URLs because I don't know where they will take me, especially if they are from someone I don't know.

These Chrome extensions for bit.ly and goo.gl will reveal the full URLs when you hover over the shortened URLs.

Bit.ly also has an official extension for Firefox.

On Safari, the Ultimate Status Bar extension can do this too.
