    Shame on you, Daveski. That was dated Jan 3rd :ouch:

    Out of curiosity, why you like that site so much ? Fresher, and still authentic news, can be had elsewhere.

    Oh sorry. I just thought it was 'interesting' as the figures seemed to contradict earlier ones. I think it's my English sense of ironic humour coming through again. :D

    Oh yeah, I have the site on a Google Reader feed, I don't actually know why, I think it seemed like a good idea at the time. o_O

    I know how you feel. I would never link to anything dodgy though. I use WOT & regularly check out sites with Virus Total. I'm pretty paranoid, it's probably safer that way. There will never be anything untoward under my bonnet. ;)

    Yeah, that looks like the source material. I didn't realise it was such old news. It seems to me that many of these 'statistics' seem to be a bit contradictory. I just have an odd sense of humour.

    Most browsers show the underlying link on mouse-over, don't they? So one normally doesn't need to click. On mouse-over, Chrome shows us the link contents in a status bubble at the bottom of the screen, Firefox 4 beta 8 shows it in the address bar, and Opera shows it just next to the link.

    Of course, I can see an argument for not even wanting to mouse-over anything as a security concern.

    And we aren't even talking about shortened URLs.
