How to use Link Unshortener with StopTheMadness:
(Watch the video tutorial on YouTube.)
StopTheMadness allows you to create Web URL Rules that automatically send clicked links from Safari to other apps. For example, you can create rules to send
https://t.co/ links from Safari to Link Unshortener. You can also set Link Unshortener preferences to automatically open the expanded links in Safari again. See StopTheMadness support for more details.
Even better, Link Unshortener automatically reads and follows the Web URL Rules created in StopTheMadness! If you set Link Unshortener as your default web browser in the General pane of System Preferences, then links clicked in Mail app, for example, will be sent to Link Unshortener, which will then follow your StopTheMadness Web URL Rules. So you could create a rule to send all
https://docs.google.com/ links to Google Chrome instead of Safari.
Tip: If you set your default web browser to Link Unshortener, it's best for overall compatibility to switch your "Trim URL queries" preference from "All" to "Known Trackers", because many URLs rely on the query to identify the appropriate page to load.
StopTheMadness can also add an "Open Link with" item to Safari's contextual menu. In StopTheMadness, you can set Link Unshortener as the app to open links with. See StopTheMadness support for more details.
In the Exclusions window, you can add URLs to exclude from unshortening. Excluded URLs will not have their URL queries trimmed, will not be upgraded from http to https, and will not be checked for redirects.
You can specify a URL with or without a /path. Paths and subpaths will always be automatically matched. (There are no wildcard characters.)
