Default Google IS Spyware

I started thinking about this after I found google software on my computer, even though I had never downloaded anything google related. Other than doing searches on google I have NEVER had anything google related used on my computer. Google installs tracking cookies on your box that are imune to any kind of blocking. And they don't delete like other cookies when you clean your cache.

You know all those ads following you around the Internet?
They're from online tracking.
No one knows more about you than Google.
Google can and does monitor people – perhaps upwards of 90 percent of Internet users worldwide – whether they use a Google product or not, and most people have no idea they're being monitored.



Read this interesting article:

Google, Bing, Yahoo – all the major search engines track your search history and build profiles on you, serving different results based on your search history. Try one of these alternative search engines if you’re tired of being tracked.

Thanks for the share. I always assumed this was the case and pretty much dealt with consequences. I will consider switching my search engine as you suggest.
