    This is an unfortunate phrase.  

    It sounds far more like you want to jerk them all off than you want to punish them.  

    lol - No, that's an unfortunate interpretation. And long way from what I had in mind :-)

    IMO, Dolphin 3D for iOS/Android > Safari or Chrome.

    A tad off-topic but a report today pegged American Express as the most trusted company in America when it comes to privacy. Hewlett-Packard and Amazon<img alt="1bugeye.gif" id="user_yui_3_7_3_1_1359417743446_1044" src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies/1bugeye.gif" style="line-height:1.231;" name="user_yui_3_7_3_1_1359417743446_1044">
    <span style="line-height:1.231;">came in at 2 and 3 respectively. Google's not on the list. Neither is Apple.</span>



    <span style="line-height:1.231;">The only internet company in the top 20 was Mozilla</span>

    So should people conclude Apple and Google are equally disreputable?
    Or are you going to get all wide eyed and innocent and claim you have no agenda in posting that crap?

    I also use Start Page on my iDevices and I have used Duckduckgo. I am moving to mail.com and getting rid of my google mail except my junk mail account which I never look at anyway.


     


    I sent an email to Tim suggesting he include both Duckduckgo and Start Page to Settings ->Safari -> General->Search Engine. Great way to have Larry's cake and eat it to, again and again and again.


     


    If enough did this maybe the point would get through and Apple could just say they are answering the needs / requests of the customers.

    If that's what you choose to see. I figured you could see the real point: The average person doesn't look at privacy the same as the more tech-minded among us. Why do you think that neither Apple nor Google was mentioned?

    It is up to the individual who expects privacy to behave carefully.  Little Snitch told me google was tracking me to every website I visited following the change in gmail privacy settings last summer. I dropped my gmail account and two days latter they stopped collecting data in that way. 


     


    What about ask.com for searches? I was told they do not keep search records. Is that correct?

    Stay far far away from the Ask.com toolbar IMO. It's one of the most persistent ones I ever had the misfortune to find on one of my computers.

    Yesterday a UK judge denied Google's argument that the proper place for the lawsuit to be heard would be the US, so it will proceed as planned.
