Title : Stop being tracked by Google search with Firefox Author: Solène Date : 04 July 2016 Tags : security web When you use google search and you click on a link, you a redirected on a google server that will take care of saving your navigation choice from their search engine into their database. 1. This is bad for your privacy 2. This slow the process of using the search engine because you have a redirection (that you don't see) when you want to visit a link There is a firefox extension that will fix the links in the results of the search engine so when you click, you just go on the website without saying "hello Google I clicked there": [Google Search Link Fix](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-search-link-fix/) You can also use another web engine if you don't like Google. I keep it because I have best results when searching technical. I tried to use Yahoo, Bing, Exalead, Qwant, Duck duck go, each one for a few days and Google has the bests results so far.
