TechCrunch Celebrates Freedom From Tracking Software While Using Tracking Software
“DuckDuckGo aims to offer up the simplicity and functionality of the big search engines, minus all the creepy tracking stuff. The company outlines everything they do/don’t store right here, but most importantly: it doesn’t use tracking cookies, and it doesn’t save a record of your IP.”
That same TechCrunch article has 20 different pieces of tracking software embedded in it, including ones from places like Advertising.com, Quigo Adsonar, and Google Analytics and forces TechCrunch readerrs to link to the data-mining giant Facebook in order to comment on articles.
If only TechCrunch practiced what it celebrates in DuckDuckGo.
