Editors' review

This handy freeware Firefox add-on helps users clarify obscured links. SplitLink installs with all the ease of Firefox add-ons. Just download it, restart Firefox, and the add-on is ready to go. A multitabbed configuration interface offers easily set options and a nice set of Help window pop-ups.

SplitLink automatically removes elements that make it harder to see where a link is sending you. That's only part of this add-on's functions. With a single click, users can quickly set pop-up windows to open in the current window, new window, or new tabs. The add-on first operates on the pop-up URLs to filter out bad parameters or block unformatted URLs. One tab includes easy-to-set options to force pop-up size.

Testers were less happy with SplitLink's Customize options. A default set of rules govern altering the URLs for specific domains and parameters. Though the tab includes a method to add items to the list, the add-on neglects to offer instruction for the option.

Obscured URLs are a daily problem for some users. SplitLink goes a long way toward reducing this issue, and adds a useful bonus feature to help manage pop-ups.

    "A really neat way of checking blind links in web pages!"

    February 15, 2010   |   By informationau

    Version: SplitLink 2.0.7

    Pros

    Split Link is truly an amazing tool, that allows a browser user to see where links in web pages are going to go. It also enables a web address to be shown in ascii characters.

    Cons

    As good It is, it only works up in Firefox fro .9x to 2.0; and it doesn't seem to have been developed for other versions, or other platforms. I still use Firefox 2.0 - it works for me.

    Summary

    Bloody ripper.
