  1. Yeah, but… which one is better? API? Stats? Password protection? Custom slugs? Browser integration?

    In essence: why list things if there’s no added value to the list 🙂

    1. It all depends of what you want…if you would like to track the number of people who have hit ur url then you can try the \”Password\” option otherwise…if u wana keep it suggest you go with TinyUrl
