Mozilla & Gecko clones The ripples caused by Google's Eric Schmidt's words are spreading further and further throughout the internet. Asa Dotzler, Mozilla's director of community development, wrote on his blog, urging people to switch away from Google to Bing, which he claims has a better privacy policy. Dotzler points users to the Firefox Bing add-on.

It's really not that bad anymore. Google is better, but I would use bing over anything else.

I didn't say their marketing wasn't abrasive or moronic (this is microsoft we are talking about), but their results really aren't that bad. If I couldn't use google, I would use that.

Haha! Good one ;) That is so funny ;) ;) Thanks for the link. That reminds me on that "YVAN EHT NIOJ" episode from the Simpsons hehe except that here MS is imagining an army of Bing users as they are pre-programming kids' minds so later on they'd think the world revolves around Bing. Kind of sad but they will soon discover there is a world out there outside Bing. Just a matter of time. Google is too powerful for MS to swallow.

As I said in the past, I don't mind MS but I certainly mind Bing, I simply do not trust its results and there is nothing anyone can do about it. Regardless the privacy, I'd continue to use Google search however I wouldn't even touch ChromeOS with a 10 foot pole. I like Google, I hate ChromeOS (for many reasons), I love the Android operating system. I love Windows 7, I hate Windows based cell phones.

maybe, but at least for me, I can't support (by using) a company's service that advocates the end of internet as we know it, advocating charges to index content and playing with content providers to block rivals.

The day internet can't be indexed by search engines, is the day internet has failed to be.
