Re: Crocodile tears

How will you prevent Google from spying on you when they control pretty much all advertising, and exercise a great deal of control of actual or defacto web standards through having the dominant browser?

You don't really think that they won't have multiple alternative ways of tracking you through standards or defacto standards that all browsers will be forced to support, that will break something if they are disabled so even if you use a pro-privacy browser you are screwed?

Saying "a monopoly is good because then only one company is out to get me" is like saying that rather than having a dozen small dogs and one medium sized dog chasing you and nipping at your heels, that you'd prefer it if the medium sized dog ate the rest and grew bigger because you somehow believe it would be easier to avoid one enormous dog chasing you and trying to bite your legs off.
