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.

After looking at the entire segment. It's obvious the topic was about the Patriot Act. I'm sorry but the reality is that what he said is true. If you are searching something online and you don't want the authorities to know about it, then don't freaking search using a search engine. If you have an issue with a search engine keeping your search history for a period of time, then don't search. All search engines, including Bing, keeps data. It's required. People should read and make decisions for themselves before making decisions based off one person. As for Bing Privacy Policy. http://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/bing.mspx <-- is a short version. As noted within that same link is the FULL notice. http://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/fullnotice.mspx. Use Bing because you like it, not because someone else rants.

Agreed. If you're concerned about privacy over your search results for angioplasty, too bad. If you're concerned about privacy because of identity theft, that's security not privacy. If you're concerned about privacy because you don't want the government to know what you are doing, then what are you doing!? Consider everything you do on the internet as being in public, then ask yourself, "Is that so awful?"
