2. I don't trust 'em.

That's why I started using Scroogle.
As I understand it, Scroogle uses google, but through a 'few 'remote'(?) servers so your tracks are covered.
Or something like that.
Oh...and no ads.

8. Tried that before but if you want to see images

and select YES to only wanting secure data

you won't get to see any images.

At least 3 different times I tried it.

10. DuckDuckGo

DuckDuckGo is a search engine that is based in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania and uses information from crowd-sourced sites (like Wikipedia) with the aim of augmenting traditional results and improving relevance. The search engine philosophy emphasizes privacy and does not record user information.

17. Well, in Firefox

you can make it your homepage by tools - preferences - general - startup - use current page(s) but I just have it set as my default search engine:

19. That's what I meant

I want to make it my default search engine, but of course it's not in my current dropdown list. I did a search in Mozilla, and found DuckDuckGo HTTPS, Lite SSL, HTML SSL . . . and others. How do you determine which one is best??

20. I just went with https

but they're probably all the same in terms of using the SSL/TLS protocol.

22. After what Google is planning to do in March, I went to duckDuckGo and scroogle.

Won't be getting an Android phone either.
And closed out my gmail account, went with Opera in browser email program.

"Google said Tuesday it will require users to allow the company to follow their activities across e-mail, search, YouTube and other services, a radical shift in strategy that is expected to invite greater scrutiny of its privacy and competitive practices. The information will enable Google to develop a fuller picture of how people use its growing empire of Web sites. Consumers will have no choice but to accept the changes.

The policy will take effect March 1 and will also impact Android mobile phone users, who are required to log in to Google accounts when they activate their phones. "

23. I like GOODSEARCH because they DONATE TO YOUR FAVORITE CAUSE - but

I see it's powered by Yahoo.

Does anyone know if Yahoo is also in on the 'we'll track you everywhere' stuff too?

It's not that I DO anything, just that I am against the process on principle!!
