QuoteI'm not sure I know of a search engine that is reasonably good, that you pay for, that doesn't collect personal information.Very true. This makes the situation even worse. My recommendation: help Wikipedia. If you just Google you will by default get into the hands of advertisers which are working to the best interest of whoever pays them. If you want to, you can pay wikipedia.

In firefox, select the green color address and right click open in new window. Yep,extra step for you!
I think they want their advertising dollar. Or they want to know what we are thinking. Or both.
There might be a disruptive use for that, too. Anything that raises the noise to signal that Google is getting about our personal data should reduce the value of what data they did get.
