privacy vs personalization?

    True personalization would mean privacy. Otherwise, what is called "personalized" is really just "we want you to use this feature and we won't tell you what it does."

    @chadd17 How would search results be customised to you if they didnt keep track of what you were interested in finding?

    not a Google fanboy, but I was wondering, how do you make sure they are not tracking you? What do they store on their servers?
    I've always wondered how one can make sure of that :)

    @AlgoRythm your interests are your own. when I search cookies, i search http cookies so i don't get chocolate chip. It's up to the user to make the program do what he wants, not up to the company to try and guess.

    TL;DR personalization should be up to the user, and nobody else.

    If only it wasn’t also privacy vs good search results. Unfortunately DDG just isn’t there yet

    Google is really good at searching. Most of the times I don't get what I really want from DDG. I use encrypted Google with Ghostery chrome extension to keep trackers away..

    So. Which browser should I use if I want some level of privacy?

    I just use Google, I'm in the small percentage of people who seem to trust Google full heartedly, the tailor made ads and suggestions have actually been pretty handy

    @cGF0 Tor will give you all the privacy, if you use it right. Opera has a built in, free vpn. Firefox is pretty good on privacy if you change some settings around.

    I like whatever makes me to complete my job faster. Currently I'm way faster using Google. I almost never found exactly what I was looking for while I used Duck Duck Go.
