TinyArro.ws: 10 new unicode domains. Defaulting previews to ON. (tinyarro.ws)

Hey guys-- thanks for all the feedback a couple of weeks ago.

We just released 10 new unicode character domains to give people some URL shrinking variety.

In addition, we thought it was a bit silly that all the URL shrinkers didn't default previews to "ON" for people and let them turn it off. Why should visitors have to track down some URL trick to show them if the URL is evil before they click on it?

Let us know what you think!

can you do the same thing as is.gd ? if you apply a "-" to the end of a url, it previews it.

In addition to always previewing it unless you opt out? We could, but we were hoping to avoid extra steps to preview things.
