If you want to get back your privacy you should start using chromium.
http://www.chromium.org/
it's the same thing as chrome except for it's private and it's open source.

You still have to accept something from Google when Installing chromium... so..

I know there's some privacy issues with chrome, but I don't really want to screw with a separate pepper flash player plugin (Although you can install pepper flash on windows), plus I like having auto update.

I'm on windows and the effort of trying to use chromium with all the video/audio codecs, and update in a timely manner is more then I care to bother with.

To clarify, since I don't see an edit button. The risk that google might use my mouse clicks and browser crashes in their statistics tracking is far less annoying then the risk that I stumble on an actual botnet or someone exploits my browser's security because I didn't bother to update chromium fast enough. Also I kinda prefer having google's safe blacklist feature, even if I am running malware bytes and Avira antivirus.

I use duckduckgo for the privacy and convenience, but I also am completely willing to put up with some less privacy in exchange for security.
