    Interesting, but they ask too many questions ;)

    Also, they're doing a Lightbeam-type thing, but I don't believe that they're accounting for anti-tracking add-ons installed. For example, I use Disconnect search, so nothing goes through Google. So it's somewhat misleading.

    But overall, it's a great heads up :thumb:

    Sure mirimir, don't think it's primarily intended for users like us,(who have anti-tracking add-ons etc), but may hopefully help to inform/educate others.

    Anyway, it's quite interesting, and may improve in other episodes. :)
