Search giant boasts that its shortener is the "stablest, most secure, and fastest."

Cnet: As micro-blogging and social networking become a more integral part of daily life, so do URL shorteners. Because popular shorteners like Bit.ly and TinyURL are operated by very small companies, Google says it felt compelled to create a shortener "for its own products where we knew the shortener wouldn't go away."

The result is goo.gl, previously available only to Google Toolbar users, but now open to the general public. The company has announced, "We don't intend to overload goo.gl with features, but we do want it to be the stablest, most secure, and fastest URL shortener on the Web."
