Over time's feature list grew and I have made it available to the public. is about monitoring accesses to an certain URL. This is interesting for the URLs mailed to friends, posted to forums or mentioned in ones blog. Accesses are counted and additionally one can open a world map displaying all the access origins. So the service is kind of a mix between the tinyurl idea and a visual traceroute application. comes with a Google Gadget to be integrated into your personal iGoogle site.
