In this particular case , the privacy problem is inseparable from the
application--the system relies upon google's Personalized search in
order to work in the first place. Now, I must admit I do have their
personalized search enabled on my own personal computer, and have done
so despite the privacy considerations & the strange places I sometimes
go for a WP article, because it works. The longer I've had it there,
the better it works--as it should be.  I use them for even my
confidential email, and I think most of us do.  I have made what i
admit is the hazardous choice of judging the benefits of their system
to be worth the possible exposure to , say, a possible future
totalitarian government.
