A simple utility for cleaning unnecessary information (? and what‘s after it) from a URL.
Unfortunately, this is not the Ultimate Link Cleaner utility I have aspired to make for as long as I‘ve curated web content in various forms, but it will at least reliably perform one function: removing “tracking“ metadata (? and the stuff after it) by disassembling a given URL and reassembling only the host and the path. That‘s it. It will not function if redirection is involved.
As configured by default… (Subject to your preference!)
- Retrieves current clipboard
- Finds the host (host.com) in the URL
- Finds the path (/path) in the URL
- Combines the raw text of the host and the path to (hopefully) form a link without a scheme (host.com/path)
- Recognizes this raw text as a real URL, adding a scheme (http://host.com/path.)
- Copies the result to the clipboard
My line is open any time if you have suggestions/feedback/feel like harassing someone for an unrelated reason:
