    Wow, it's not that I do things I don't want people to know about so much as I do things that are no one's damn business and I don't care to have ads and other crap catered to me just because one day I googled wood floors and found out it doesn't quite mean textiles. I guess maybe I should stop using Google Chrome.

    Do you think your alternatives are any more "private"?

    I read that article on Slashdot and was amused at one of the comments which asked (very roughly, I forget the exact wording):

    such a very good point.

    I've been using ixquick for almost all searching for more than a year now. It usually finds what you're looking for and has been awarded for its privacy policy.

    Theres a few addons like glims but it should be able to have different search providers built in.
