    The Google URL Shortener at goo.gl is a service that takes long URLs and squeezes them into fewer characters to make a link easier to share, tweet, or email to friends. read more here

    I would like to stay away from it. Be it google chrome or goo.gl
    Don't know what data they are going to collect with this.

    Last week Mcafee also started a short url service Mcaf.ee

    I did some test and it doesn't get the links index if just create a short link or if you open it repetitively, it is just another waste of time

    Google chrome is spyware
