Even with Chrome, I use DuckDuckGo as my search engine. Oddly, in Europe, despite the EU wanting to separate Goole Search from the rest of its services, Firefox will be keeping Google as its default search engine in Europe (http://searchengineland.com/google-firefox-europe-209378).
More interesting is the news out of Europe - http://www.slashgear.com/report-european-parliament-wants-google-broken-up-21356798/
So, Europe wants Google "broken up". It's almost amusing. Google can buy and sell Europe and still make a profit. The whole thing is about the selling of 'preferred ads' 'relevant' to the user. If the user has a brain, he can use any search engine he prefers.
"Nov 21 (Reuters) - The European Parliament is preparing a non-binding resolution that proposes splitting Google Inc's search engine operations in Europe from the rest of its business as one possible option to rein in the Internet company's dominance in the search market.
European politicians have grown increasingly concerned about Google's and other American companies' command of the Internet industry, and have sought ways to curb their power. A public call for a break-up would be the most far-reaching action proposed and a significant threat to Google's business.
The draft motion does not mention Google or any specific search engine, though Google is by far the dominant provider of such services in Europe with an estimated 90 percent market share. Earlier on Friday, the Financial Times described a draft motion as calling for a break-up of Google."
I guess the EU thinks it's less of a monopoly than Google. Hypocrisy at its best.
They don't seem to realize that the people can make their own choices...Bing, and all the other search engines could have been freely chosen by the Europeans and still can be...they chose Google. So, in the best of the all wise "we know better than you, so we have to protect you" mentality, the EU is swooping in.
