Re: Google search privacy:

You can turn off web history. I did the day I learned that I can do so.

Re: Analytics. Use NoScript as someone said earlier. Not only does it
prevent Google tracking, but it makes your browsing faster by blocking all
that Javascript crap that sites have and blinking flash ads too.

Speaking of Nefarious Google, has anyone tried their public DNS? IP

I did switch to that a couple of days ago. Don't see much of a difference. I
was on Level 3's 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2 servers before and they work well too.
They are both about 37 milliseconds from where I am. No redirection of "not
found" pages like OpenDNS does.
