Choosing a Search Engine

If you are using a search engine like Google, Bing or Yahoo, you should consider changing your default search engine to a more privacy-minded search engine:

Getting more Privacy from a non-privacy-based Search Engine

Sometimes Google just gives you better, more personalized results, so it’s understandable that you’d still want to use it — at least sometimes.

However, if you do use such a search engine, I recommend using the open-source Search Link Fix Extension by Wladimir Palant, which replaces the tracker links on Google and Yandex’ result pages with the destination link. This is not only helpful for privacy, but also if you want to quickly share a result. However, this does not prevent the search engines from tracking your search queries.

If you want Google to stop tracking your queries, you can disable it here.
