Use Bing Search For Best Privacy | Recomends Mozilla

Mozilla is telling Firefox users to switch to Bing which is also surprising, since Mozilla has an agreement in place with Google through 2011. I think that says a lot about how important Mozilla feels about privacy.

If you have watched CNBC special ‘Inside the Mind of Google‘ you would be pretty surprised at Google’s statement about the privacy of users of its Search Engine:

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…
That is one way to answer the question, I… guess. Although that kind of elicits a surprised response similar to the dad that gets hit in the crotch when tossing a baseball for his kid’s batting practice. (Google Bing it – its a hoot :-) ). - Crystalcoasttech
It is slightly odd that Google would feel that way, especially when they don’t seem to respond the same way when the privacy tables are turned.

Bing is slowly gaining grounds on the search engine market. Bing filters really well, they don’t just crawl any sites, they are really picky about who they let in.
