Google Launches URL Shortener

by Frank Michlick in Categories: Up to the Minute

Goodle has now launched it’s own URL shortener under the domain in the ccTLD of Greenland. The service is not offered as a standalone service at this point, but is instead embedded into Google Toolbar and Feedburner. The new product also automatically checks to detect sites that may be malicious and will warn users.
