What is Bing doing with Google ?
Shane Greenstein provides a very clear explanation and critique.
I was interested in finding out what I am telling Microsoft. In options, I don't see an option to not send any information (why am I not surprised).
So I went to
which tells me that if I want to learn about privacy and specific applications, I should click on the list to the right of the page.
This works for Windows Update, Windows Media center and the tell them about errors (Internet explorer communicates with me in Italian). However when I click on the button labled "internet explorer" it sends me right back to
Odd that Microsoft isn't telling me about internet explorer and privacy just now no ?
Just for information, is it possible to use internet explorer without sending microsoft information or was I warned long long ago when I installed it that this was part of the game. Can I use internet explorer without sending them information by re-installing and checking a box that says no ?
I notice that if I turn on the anti-pishing filter then internet explorer warns me that I will send information to Microsoft, and when I turn it off, there is no message -- neither "Now you aren't sending us information" nor "You are still sending us information."
The reader will notice that I am not very web savvy and I am humbly asking for help.
