Like a grotty data addict desperately jonesing for its next fix, Google just can't stop misbehaving

Presumably you're missing the fact that it doesn't matter what search engine you use if every site you subsequently visit has Google's tracking service embedded in it. Noscript and ad-blocking are pretty much required for any semblance of privacy, but with all kinds of fingerprinting methods that don't rely on third party scripts there's very little you can do to truly eliminate every way Google (and others) try to spy on you. Whether you use Google to search or not is largely irrelevant.
