Google Adds URL Shortener

Another awesome idea by Google, a second URL shortener, but this one is more designed around security.

Unlike, which is public, anyone can make a short URL with that can lead anywhere, but will be private and only created by Google themselves, can't be created by anyone and Googles plan is to use them for when linking to something that is a Good product or service.

The idea is that more users will trust links if they know that the website they are being linked to is a Google product and safe.

Nice one Google!
