Internet & Networking Remember when Altavista was the search engine? Or Yahoo? They stuffed their search pages with useless, distracting crap, and using them became unpleasant. And then, bam, along came Google, with a simple, clear search page and uncluttered search results. However, now that Google has become this massive behemoth, tracking our every move, and tailoring our search results, leading to only being fed those pages you agree with - isn't it time for something new? Something simple? It might be, and you've undoubtedly heard of them: DuckDuckGo. I'm switching. Update: Just got an email from Gabriel Weinberg, the guy behind DuckDuckGo. The OSNews !bang (!osnews) is now live!

Hey, if my neighbor is constantly browsing Al-Qaeda supporting websites, and reading articles titled "Bomb Making For Dummies" or "Explosives 101", hell I WANT the government to track him down

Really? You want him tracked down because he reads that?
What if he's reading about the Boston Teaparty? Or about the southern states in the civil war?

As normal human being who is not interested in bomb-making websites and Al-Qaeda, I don't mind if this kind of track-down occurs.

Who are you to decide what's normal?

It's interesting how back in the 80's when the Soviets did this kind of stuff the U.S painted it has evil and how it could never happen in freedom-loving USofA. Now of course, it's all for the better of mankind to spy on the citizens. Funny how that works out.
