Andorin writes “Asa Dotzler, Mozilla’s director of community development, has published a brief blog post in which he recommends that Firefox users move from using Google as their main search engine to Bing, citing privacy issues. Disregarding the existence of alternative search engines such as Ask and Yahoo, Dotzler asserts that Bing’s privacy policy is better than Google’s. Dotzler explains the recommendation with a quote from Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google: ‘If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place. If you really need that kind of privacy, the reality is that search engines — including Google — do retain this information for some time…’ Ars Technica also covers the story.”
