Could we at least have a user selectable amount that is shown, eg. 10 to 100 characters say..
So if we are happy with short links, then we are catered for, and if we like a bit more text to read, we are also catered for. :-)
Though maybe it should be from 16 to 255..
Or maybe it could be, shock horror, computed..
Such as, if the link is 300+ characters long, only show the first 100..
If its 150 characters long, show the entire link.
That kind of thing, so for most cases, for short links, it doesn't chop the end off.
And for really long links, you get to see enough of the link to get an idea of where it is going, even if you don't see the entire thing.
And yet prevents huge 1,000+ character links being shown..
It reminds me of name forms, that have like 15 letters, and of course, no one ever has a name longer than that !
I ran into that recently with an address form, only 30 characters allowed, and my address is more like 50..

I should also complain about the line length being too short causing unnecessary word wrapping..
Shouldn't that also be a user selectable amount option. :-)
1/3 of my screen has text on it, 2/3 don't !
