I'm not using Google anymore. Just not going to do it. With all the privacy threats on the Internet, some monolith like Google tracking our search habits and collecting data on us is the last thing we need. I hope I represent at least a sizable group here when I say: Fuck. That. Shit. The Internet is a fucking crazy beast. Never has there been a thing that so many people flock to that also is constantly collecting data on who you are, what you do, how you think, etc. It's insane. A little while back I found out about Duck Duck Go, a privacy-focused search engine that doesn't track you or store searches. It took me a little while to make the switch because, quite frankly, the interface isn't as pretty as Google's. So it takes some getting used to, but I eventually came around to making the switch and I'm glad I did. For those interested, here's an interview with the founder: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/apr/04/duckduckgo-gabriel-weinberg-secure-searches And the Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DuckDuckGo Guys, Google does NOT have to be the way. They are one company and they are one search engine. You don't have to sell out to them. EDIT: Just found out that you can change the look, which makes it a hell of a lot more user-friendly.
