In the News "Internet users worried about their personal information being intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies should stop using websites that send data to the United States, Germany's top security official said Wednesday." Cute, but pointless. France does it too, as does the UK. Documents from the Dutch intelligence agencies indicate that they, too, are involved in mass surveillance, the extent of which will supposedly be investigated by parliament.

Quite a few sites now use ajax.googleapis.com for hosting standard .js files.
That means ever visitor to such a site hands Google a referrer of the page they're on, their IP address and browser fingerprint.
