Default Is this legitimate ? (outboundlink.net)

When I click on a link in forum posts, my browser goes to 'outboundlink.net' instead of the url in the link.
What is outboundlink.net ?

(as far as I know, my browser isn't broken.)

Yes, that's legit. Some outbound links are modified so that if traffic is sent to sites that pay affiliate revenue (such as ebay), they know where it came from (us). The intermediary tracking website is "outboundlink.net".
