Whenever I do a Google search, if I right click and copy the URL of a result link, it results in a Google redirector URL:
This has many disadvantages for me, the three most important being:
- inability to copy a link without visiting it
- the redirection often takes several seconds, while the actual page would load immediately
- privacy issues
Is there a way to make Google link to actual URLs? Maybe there is a browser plugin which visits resolves all URLs and replaces them?
The same problem applies to Facebook - a typical outgoing link looks like this:
My browser of choice is Opera so an userscript or Opera plugin would be preferred, but I'll be happy to hear about all possibilities.
