Use a search engine that doesn't track you
As long as Google, et al. continue to track/hand over my data to the NSA, et al. I'll be using DuckDuckGo dot com.

I think now search engine on smartphones also plays huge role in the market share. As android being the OS leader the default preference of its user will be Google and the user would be highly satisfied with the default tool unlike explorer in windows.

Re: Will yahoo poison microsft?
It would be poetic justice if it did, as the attempted buyout almost destroyed Yahoo.  MS shareholders really should thank Jerry Yang for resisting it as strongly as he did as it was a much worse deal for MS than it was for Yahoo.  Steve Ballmer finally wised up, but it took a while.

Will yahoo poison microsft?
I take malware and other infections off computers almost everyday as part of my job. From that perspective, I try to draw some conclusions about how consumers can avoid malware and such. Other than a few basic guidelines there is not much I can say to reassure clients they won't just turn around and get infected again. That said, it does seem clear that people who do a lot of searching collect the most infections. Of these, those who use Yahoo or AOL as their search have far more trouble than those using Google or Bing.

I want to wish Microsoft Bing well and suggest profilaxis.
