Will you use Google's new url shortener?

Last week, Google opened its url shortener, Goo.gl, to the public. It used to be available only on the Google toolbar and Feedburner. Now you can access it on http://goo.gl/

Will you use it if you're already using another url shortener?

Yes, I think I'd give it a try :)

Google’s release note said that their URL shortener has the following features:

* Stability: Google’s scalable, multi-datacenter infrastructure provides great uptime and a reliable service to our users.
* Security: As we do with web search, shortened URLs are automatically checked to detect sites that may be malicious and warn users when the short URL resolves to such sites.
* Speed: At Google we like fast products and we’ve worked hard to ensure this service is quick. We’ll continue to iterate and improve the speed of Google Url Shortener.

With goo.gl, every time you shorten a URL, you know it will work, it will work fast, and it will keep working. You also know that when you click a goo.gl shortened URL, you’re protected against malware, phishing and spam using the same industry-leading technology we use in search and other products.

I hope they add more features to it like options for connecting to other social networking sites. Currently, I use ping.fm (http://ping.fm) because it allows me to update other social networking accounts such Twitter, Plurk, Facebook Fan pages, etc. from within my Ping.fm account.
