For a long time HTML Pasta has used the uuid v4 standard for URL generation, today, this changes. Now we are following in the footsteps of the likes of Giphy which started a trend of using funky and quirky URLs for their user uploads. Here is an example of a new URL All new pastes will follow a similar type structure from today onwards.

What about privacy, you say? Aren't these URLs predictable? Well, while there may be a smaller length to the URLs and they may be procedurally generated (i.e predictable), our algorithm for generating these procedurally and the words we are using are proprietary, thus it is realistically relatively impossible to predict. There are also tens of millions of possible combinations of our unique generation system, further making it impossible to predict. So fear not, your pastes are still as private as you want them to be.

Let us know what you think in the comments of this new little feature.
