I never log into google, and use disconnected search also.
Isn't the problem now though, that it doesn't really matter whether you use Disconnected Search or not, the possibility exists that whatever you've typed/looked at/etc is now tracked by your browser. Whether or not that info ends up at Google by some way or another isn't the real issue as I see it, just as Windows 10 has become all invasive so it seems has Chrome.
I'd really like to use products with comparable features, but without the tracking/spyware.
Just as a matter of interest, isn't Chrome based on Chromium?
Would it not be better, (as in less tracking, etc), to use Chromium?
I don't use either, hence the question.
