Admittedly, I do use Chrome, so naturally Google Search, but I nonetheless agree that Google knows far too much about us all. That's partly why I don't put too much through Gmail/calendar/all that jazz. I should probably give DuckDuckGo a try though. For now, and I'm sure this is the same for much of the population, I'm programmed to automatically go to Google.
Hi BKJ84 and others! I M U S T thank you IMMENSELY for this solution. I worket my butt for a whole night fighting EXACTLY the same crap which invaded both IE9 and FF17. Any possible malware remover I could try did not help., although I did manage prior to it to successfully remove ANY program starting with "SWEETXXX" from my hard disk disk via both W7 remover (control panel) anf the free CCleaner "uninstall". in a long prior rush, I had also searched the registry (CAREFULLY!!!!) via W7's genuine Register Editor (Regedit) and found a pile of "SweetIm" occurences. I decided to take one of the FAQ's advices, downloaded Regsweep, and executed it with the keyword "SweetIm". That resulted in killing a few Registry entries, but did NOT remove the stubborn Tab. I also used a very good Freeware, on top of CCleaner, called Wise Registry Cleaner, to clean the regitsty after each consecutive correction act. But I had missed the key step!! You helped me realizing that I HAD NEGLECTED to also remove the DEFAULT DT SEARCH install from the installed W7 program list. I missed it stupidely enough, andi should have sorted the list of installs by date: it would have popped obvious that this WAS the latest install of this malicious suite, which installed against my will during a legitimate freeware download. To make a very long story... a bit shorter, this last removal nixed immediately the "encrusted" TAB from both Firefox and IE9 after a simple re-boot. There is NO NEED whatsoever to reset FF or anything else!! THANKS, Happy New Year, good luck and boo...oes to Sweet-and-sour products!!
Trust and privacy are the biggest reasons to leave Google and its search algorithm behind. There is no beating about the bush. The sheer number of searches conducted every single day by Google is astonishing. They hold tens of exabytes of data on every subject matter you’d care to think of. And your personal data, your personal searches, your obscure, seemingly trivial or highly embarrassing searches, are in there too.
I got the same thing while downloading PS3 controller driver... I found it in 3 places 1. Internet Explorer> Tools> Manage Add-ons> Search Results LLC: Default Search Tab> Disable 2. Task Manager its called DT something but if you download or have Process Explorer you'll see it as Default Search Tab and just right click and stop process. 3. Start> Control Panel> Default Tab> KILL IT WITH FIRE!
this kind of article is funny. its a trade your privacy for convenient life world now. if you really care of privacy, you have already exposed your ip address to this website, your name to your reader, your billing address to your isp, your personal informtion to your credit card company. google just know as much as they know and more. and if i have to trade my privacy anyway, whynot choose one big company which protect your privacy data better and give you better service? instead of chose some small company and trust they not save your info....forever?
Katzman, for one, doesn’t think the additional data will do much to change the process of sifting through that information. Google is “always trying to make searches more semantically smart,” he said, but “applying to college is not like buying a toaster.” It’s a decision that is made over weeks or months through a complex process informed by financial-aid promises, standardized-test scores, and insight from counselors or other advisers.

Traditional car loans require you to make payments to the bank or financial institution from which you obtained the loan. With BHPH, you may be asked to make weekly or bi-weekly payments directly to the dealership. Typically BHPH dealers arrange your payments to correspond with your “pay day”, which is designed to set up both the customer and dealer for a successful loan experience.
Understand - nearly every website you go to, has dozens of trackers installed. It doesn't matter whether you're tracked via search, by the page you go to, by the app on your smartphone, by Facebook, your debit and credit cards, or any of the rest. Right now - you've got literally hundreds of different trackers that are cataloging your every move that they're aware of.
Whether it's the feeling of summer sun on your face as splash along the shores of Lake Erie, the pure joy in the eyes of your child during her first trip to the Columbus Zoo or memorable moments spent hiking through Hocking Hills with your dad, there's nothing quite like a great Ohio getaway. Here's a look at some of the memorbale moments visitors share daily on Instagram with #OhioFindItHere:
This article was considered relevant to me by Goole, on my android phone, does me reading it constitute a paradox? I am a fan of my google devices, and although I completely understand the issues people have with the invasiveness of it all, I believe the train has already left the station on this issue, you'd have an easier time getting rid of sliced bread.

I totally agree. This page is full of ads. and the reason we were all sucked in to this page was its title. T he whole time I was on this page, ad were loading and trackers were loading in the background. And while my Internet connection may not be gigabit, it's right around 70 mbps. The title may not be click-bait, but it's damn close. Seems like I've read other puerile anti-Google rants VERY similar to this on other sites - sure seems familiar. I had to laugh at the author's suggestion that Wolfram|Alpha is a good substitute for Google. Makes me wonder what the hell he's smoking!

LinkedIn, meanwhile, actively promotes its half-billion-plus membership base as an asset to colleges in search of students. It, too, is focused chiefly on the postgraduate market, after a brief foray into the world of undergraduate admissions. (In 2014 it began a college-ranking site and related services, but it shuttered most of those features two years later.)

Adding an extra layer of two-facedness to life is a step backwards, not forwards, IMHO. Speaking from experience of what it is like to be watched constantly (in a given context, community etc, pre-internet) and the damage done to one's humanity is SEVERE. Or some derivation of 'severe'. This is the thing: depending on how conformist one is [born to be]. Hence why scared, overly-conformist people who think this makes them safe, think that no harm can be done by being watched all the time. They value conformity and don't realise that taking that too far makes humans into robots and creates fascism etc.

It is also amazing how this article was surfaced via my Google Now because Google knew I was interested in this kind of stuff. If Google was evil, they would never surface this type of article that has a opposite position to Google. Also that Ad shown at the bottom of this article was probably targeted based on Google data which ultimately helps you as the author monetize the traffic you are getting.

Google is everywhere. It gathers information to power its massive advertising arm. Google is tracking you around the internet, building an individual advertising profile to better serve you ads. Some users don’t mind, reasoning that if they’re going to see ads (advertising essentially powers the internet), they might as well see ones relevant to their interests.

But fans did figure out relatively early on that they were all looking in one direction, before this challenge was ever issued. Despite being on opposite ends of the map, they were all staring toward a central point. There was a theory that this might be a new season 5 mystery to be uncovered, but in truth it seems it was only leading up to this challenge.

I gave Bing a chance because of the rewards. That was a year ago. I learned 2 important lessons over those 12 months: Bing's rewards are terrible, but Bing search results are worse. I am glad to be back to Google search. But I agree with the premise of this article: with so much data running through Google tools, individual privacy is at risk. Time to find a new browser and/or a new search engine.
