Re: I try to use a combination of methods
The mention of DDG was what I was wondering about - I will be seriously upset if I have to give up on DuckDuckGo! I haven't noticed anything slips by it, unless I configure it that way. It gives me granular control to allow web sites I support to keep doing business. Taking that away will impact Google's, AND those web site's business, I hope they know!!!
Hopefully this won't affect Edge, because that is what I will switch too if the Chocolate Factory pulls this stunt!. If it does effect it I will switch to FireFox whether I like it or not, or whatever browser I can to get away from the creepy crawly privacy violation that is Google.
