Google back in 2005:

There will be no banner ads on the Google homepage or web search results pages.

Google today:

The company confirmed to the Guardian that it is testing a system with about 30 advertisers in the US in which it shows banner ads for companies including SouthWest Airlines on pages which include them in web search results.

And people wonder why I have zero trust in companies.

I do not trust DuckDuckGo, I think they might share informations with either the US government, either keep track of users actions either sell informations for profit.

I trust startpage.com or ixquick.com more. Of course, when I use startpage.com for searching, I don't do it from Chrome or IE as it would defeat the purpose of using startpage.
