Yeah, "don't be evil" my foot! They're a private anonymous-stockholder
corporation, AIUI required by law to be evil if it's more profitable.

Any guide on setting Firefox/Iceweasel to completely replace Google?
I think I've got all of the defaults and I've installed noscript.net,
but I'm not entirely confident.

I've also tried Chromium recently (the FOSS browser inside Chrome) and
I've been really disappointed with how clunky the privacy controls are.
Am I being dense and using it wrong, or do they not want users to have
any privacy? ;-)
