    I run Blur and Disconnect (Fast PC, no issues!). I see this morning Majorgeeks has one called TrackMeNot. Assume they are probably all much the same! Thank you!

    I use uBlock for ads, Ghostery, selectivecookiedelete, NoScript and BetterPrivacy. I run my searches through StartPage which gives Google's results but not Google's tracking. All this limits tracking to a degree but I'm also sure it's not enough... :)

    I simple don't understand why, even when I use startpage, and have no clear options set regarding geo, when I search for "extra time"' for example, startpage (google) return results for websites from my country, while it returns completely different results when I do the same search using TOR for example.
