Don't use it.
A proprietary internet, beholding to one browser has only recently been brought back to open standards.
Use Opera, Firefox, IE8 / IE9.
The Advertmongers that are Google Inc only give you free stuff to bribe you to give them data. Your data is worth far more than a sweetie (candy for you Americans). The personal data that is inadvertantly given to Google is far more than is needed for them to build a profile of you AND with the streetview IP address snaggling they KNOW where you live too.
Do you use Android? Registered your phone? What's the betting they know your name too?
Information is power. (to paraphrase the old quotation) Google has enough on you to model your behaviors.
Google has power, too much of it. I believe that "do no evil" died many moons ago.
