About:

This site shortens your URLs.
It's fairly simple. You enter a way too long URL such as

http://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=bowen,+qld&sll=-25.335448,135.745076&sspn=42.731392,79.101563&ie=UTF8&ll=-19.985086,148.257279&spn=0.022101,0.038624&z=15

and we generate a much shorter URL like

http://chilp.it/3a1fde

Copy that shorter link and paste it wherever you like. It simply redirects to the original URL.
Well, it's much easier for sharing, tweeting or mailing, isn't it? Yes, because it's shorter! :-)

To use the preview function just put "p." in front of a link: http://p.chilp.it/3a1fde

You'll get click statistics by placing "s." in front of a short URL: http://s.chilp.it/3a1fde

You might also check our fine Chilp it! bookmark applet. Just Drag & Drop Chilp it! into your bookmarks and shorten URLs with only one click.

That's not enough? Go get the Twitter plugin for IE+FF with Chilp it! support from CloudberryLab.

By the way, we are in public beta now. Please be friendly to our happy servers.

Thanks for using Chilp it!,
it's a pleasure to have you here!
